0Icky0: gaspode: Well there you go. maybe, given I have the most glorious view of Eta imaginable from here, I need to spend some time just laying on the ground looking at it to see if I can detect that hint!Remember, you can't look directly at it.I first noticed it off to the right when looking at the Southern Cross.If I remember correctly, it disappeared when I looked directly at the nebula.
gaspode: Yeah I know that trick, been watching Comet Lemmon the last days through binoculars in the same way, centre of the view offset makes it much brighter, fascinating to watch its progress past the pole..

Shadowknight: I would think that your average long exposure on your typical DSLR, about 32 seconds at maximum, wouldn't really curve/blur that much. I could be wrong, and will see when I try it.
