Thanks for the feedback Paul. I couldn't pull M45 out either but I did take a shot of Mercury. Observed a marked enhancement to the twilight between 22.47 and 23.00 BST. 60 degrees in azimuth and 5 degrees high from the NW to N sky sectors far below Auriga, Perseus, Andromeda region. No structure evident but looked like a bright while glow similar to a type 2 brightness veil. Sky didn't look normal in comparison to when I seen it on the last good evening at the same time. The Moonlight concerned me however. Was just curious...
