The Flaming Star Nebula
The Flaming Star itself, AE Aur, HIP 24575 itself is very easy to locate, even though it is in an amazingly rich field in the finderscope
However, getting a glimpse of the Nebula itself is not so easy!
There is a hint of nebula across the whole 12mm FOV, a little more defined when using the UHC filter
However the best view was, allbeit very faint, with 25mm and 18mm with UHC filter
Rather disappointing but still a beautiful starfield
