Part of The Soul nebula

I decided to have a little experiment to see how much of the Soul nebula in Cassiopeia I could image with my current camera and telescope combination and whether a mosaic would be possible.

Re: Barnard 33 The Horsehead nebula

I am using a Polemaster for alignment which is pretty good but I do guide with Phd2 for extra control. Thanks for all the comments, first time I had attempted this object, processing the image with Alnitak in the fov was a real test with the combination of a bright star and faint nebulosity.
