Description

Here's another astro image, the famous horse head and the flame nebula, taken from my backyard.

I've been working on this one since December. I wanted to spend more time on it but the weather has been horrible the past few weeks and it doesn't look promising in the next couple. By then I won't have a clear line of sight on it so I'm calling this one done.. at least until next winter.
