A firm favourite of mine full of interesting details like the faint blue reflection nebula, dark dust, emerging new stars and colourful starfield. I especially like the 'corkscrew' like dark dust cloud at bottom of the frame.

I have been fortunate to add to the fine data from e-Eye with some subs taken last summer with the same Tak FSQ106 and ccd when we were testing before installation in Spain.
