Horsehead in Ha

The weatherman had promised me a clear night. The weatherman broke his promise!

What I’d hoped would be a full night acquiring data on this target was truncated by the sudden appearance of a bank of heavy cloud. I only managed to capture the Hydrogen Alpha data for this target so I can’t produce a colour image, but as it looks kinda cool I’ve decided to process and post it anyway!

Certainly a target I’ll return to in future!
