Bubble Nebula NGC7635 and cluster M52, in H alpha

Ordinarily I wouldn't go for such a small target with the TV85. But there were two clear nights with a near-full moon dominating the sky and this was the most interesting object that was close to 90 degrees away from it. I'm not likely to get to OIII and SII this year as it is at transit now at dusk.

my back yard; December 11 and 12 2011, 26x1000s (Ha), seeing/transparency average at best. Parsec 8300M on TV85 at f/5.6; guided.
