Horsehead and flame nebulae, from my backyard in heavy light pollution. Once again, this is combined data from last year (108 mins) and a few days ago (90 mins)...

This might be the last picture I post on astrobin. This is a great website with an awesome community but I mainly use it as a image hosting site. There is no way that I'm paying 36$US a year for hosting pictures, even with the added functions. I want to thank everyone who subscribed to my channel and liked my pictures. :) I also want to thank the astrobin admins, owner and creator for all the hardwork they did for creating and maintaining this website!

Clear skies everyone!
