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.

Thank you for stopping on by and as always comments/criticisms are welcome!
