The nearby Pennines create almost constant air turbulence, and that was the case this morning (Antoniadi IV). This prevented me from capturing a routine RGB, so I cheated with an IRGB, which calmed things down a bit. I attach both the IRGB and the IR captures.

 The use of IR, of course, makes the albedo markings rather more prominent than they are to the eye.
