Hi,

This part of sky is fairly rarely image though the object here has a lot to show, mostly reflection nebulas.

Lots of time on that one. Lots of moon you were fighting so would need time to cut through it. Came out well though mirrored which confuses my brain to no end. You image it through a star diagonal?

I'll need to copy and take out the mirror flip to compare to my version taken last February when I get to processing it. Still processing December so be a bit before I get to it. Though with less than one seventh the time doubt I go as faint as you do.

Thanks guys,

Rick,

It's just a matter of registering files. Either PixInsight or ImagesPlus mirrors them. If it were horse head I would mirror it back for the rest I have difficulty spotting the right picture.
