    Thanks all, the Aladin site the Asteroidsrock linked made allowed for the easiest ID. So here I have to admit I was wrong (yes Gabby another first), it appears that what I have captured is UGC 8313.

    This makes for the second DSO I have captured in the +14 range, but first with the 8" Quattro sporting a DSLR. My first dim DSO (IC1789 +14.8 magnitude) was caught with the same scope but had an Atik Infinity camera stuffed in it.

    On a side note, the sky was poor on the latest imaging session, my wife accused me of being crazy (she may be correct) because the ground fog was bad. The goal was to put Plate solving through it's paces from APT. My guiding was also tested. That said, my 10 minute exposures displayed Stars bloating, the 5 minute exposures proved to be better.

    With Plate solving figured out and all the right boxes ticked to make it work with my equipment I just knew the learning curve was going to make another jump upward. Proves an old dawg can learn a new trick, just more slowly!!!!

    Amazing capture! FYI, Sky Safari pro does display UGC 8313. I had to play around with the sliders. Not sure what the difference is between the settings "Magnitude Limit" and "Never show fainter than." Maybe someone else does.
