Description

I was fortunate enough this winter to have some clear skies in January and February and the opportunity to re-shoot the horsehead nebula again. The First time I was not very successful. I'm photographing from suburban bortle 5 skies in a direction over a city of about 40000 people. I think it turned out all right even though city-glow was right below it.
