We've had some beautiful clear nights and here is one of many images I had the pleasure of collecting data for. I was surprised by the amount of the light wispy reflection nebulae in the region and adds a nice touch to the overall image.
I'm not entirely sure if I'm fond of the colour as it looks a wee bit saturated on my phone and tablet, but of course perfect on my monitor. I am known to change my mind once in a while. :)
I have 3h of 5nm hydrogen alpha captured for this very region and will get to it sometime in the near future.
