This winter season has been worst I have seen in fifteen years. We have now had almost constant cloud cover for about three months. There was a partially clear sky for couple of nights and I managed to use it, since my observatory is located just next to my home. The night between 18. and 19. of January was kind of clear but the seeing and transparency was very poor. I was about to toss away all of the frames for IC 443 but since I haven't anything else to process, I kept them. Here are the results, I did the best I could with a low quality material. This object will need much more exposures in future.

Mapped color photo is made by using the missing channels, O-III and S-II, from my older wide field photo of the IC 443. Fore images and info, please, use a link under the image above.
