Description

NGC2174 (The Monkey Head Nebula) in Ha.

I'm planning on adding OIII and SII data in the near future, but like how the mono Ha image looks on its own. Also, it was pretty windy and my guiding wasn't great, so I might try to recapture the Ha data in the future when my mount and the weather cooperate better.
