LBN468 and Gyulbudaghian's Nebula
I got the tip to image this one when Gyulbudaghian's Nebula showed up on the OSP Level 3 Observing List (18"+ scopes and seriously keen observers) last year. Since after attempting it and not being able to see it in my 16" dob, I decided to image it via the 66mm refractor this year. LOL. I was able to check it off the list as "IE" (imaging enhanced). Hey, if you can't see it in a giant dob, image it with a tiny refractor. 8^)
