Nova Delphini

Here's a 40- second shot of the new nova in Delphinus, which is a naked eye object. This image was taken with an ETX-125 and a Nikon D40. It's a single shot to get a record of the nova for the blog. Nova Delphini is the blue star near the center of the image. The "bobbliness" of the stars is due to vibration of the scope, but the shot shows the nova rather well.
