The Horsehead and Flame nebulae. Unfortunately just 45 minutes of data as the cloud did for me. Gear was the Altair Astro 60 EDF and the Starlight Xpress SXVR H9-C.

Brian, well done on capturing this image. What an iconic nebula it is, isn’t it? It must be very satisfying to be able to produce these high quality images from your own location. Thanks for taking the time to post it.

Best wishes, Jeff.

Why when it looks nothing like a horse"head" is it still called that, it really is the horse"butt" nebula
