Description

Finally getting some clear nights in Sydney. Decided to hit up a much loved but never successfully shot nebula in NGC 3576. Don't know if I'd class this one as a success yet, but after a few nights of working through issues and shooting, this is the most respectable image I have yet of this pretty cool part of the sky. Image is in SHO, hope you like it!
