Description

Hello Folks,

Here is my second attempt for the season of Thor's Helmet. My first attempt was earlier this year when Canis Major was rising very late in the morning. I think this one is better. This really is a beautiful part of the sky with a spectacular star field and a nebula to match. One of my favorite nebulas for sure.

Thanks for looking.
