Description

Attracted by the warmth of the #FlameNebula the Wanderer approached. The enticing possibility of easing his journey on #HorseheadNebula -back was quickly forgotten when he saw the fierce Hunter on guard. He kept wandering.

This is the image I didn't expect to get, after giving up trying to frame the comet with all three nebulae in view, wind gusting to 30km/hr during the capture, and then issues with flat-fielding in processing.
