NGC 2261 Hubble Variable Nebula. Image data collected from our remote observatory in Marathon, TX. Lots of challenges with the data - passing clouds, focus was an issue as well. Stars look saturated, but, it does look we (Anis Abdul and I) collected some "deep" data - I can see some dust lanes around the nebula.

We are going to continue collecting more data, so hopefully the colors will improve.
