My first nova, TCP J18102829-2729590, an 8th-9th magnitude object in the Sagittarius “Teapot” asterism.
This cropped image was taken with my Canon 60D on 5th November 2016, using my Sky Watcher “Star Adventurer” RA guided tripod mount and a 50mm lens at 30 seconds f/2.5 ISO 800 exposure.
The Lagoon Nebula M8 is also visible.
