I had to look it up as well. Some conflicting data on the web about it. Most say it's 360" in diameter but one states 1° (I suppose they thought 360"=1°) and whilst most say its mag V14 another gives it as mag V17. The concensus appears to be that that the central star is about mag V17 - which can just be seen in your image, but I guess being a blue dwarf it won't show up very well in Ha or O3.

Anyway, an unusual capture, well done.

That's so impressive....faint photons indeed! Particularly considering the awful weather we have been having... A real result!
