Hi,

This nebula is just next to Orion nebula but it seldom imaged on its own.

Colour was borrowed from Hyperstar f/2, Ha and Luminance added at f/8.

Thanks Jim,

Thanks Leo,

Yes, can't get enough from RC.
I'm happy I was first to shoot it. Just warming up public before your next masterpiece.

I wasn't familiar with NGC 1999 but it looks like a very rich area. I'll have to add it to my list.
