The Cone Nebula, imaged with narrowband filters with a "natural" color mapping. Conditions were challenging, imaging it from a light-polluted suburban driveway with marginal seeing and transparency, while the nebula was dangerously close to a quarter moon. Good conditions here in Central Florida have been very rare lately, so I'm taking any opportunity to image I can get! All things considered, I think it came out pretty good.
