Hi,

This is a remarkable object. T Tauri star - young and like our sun.
Fairly faint to say the least.

Nice shot, Mark! Every time I see a Hind's Variable Nebula image, I try to see the difference from the image I took on 18 Jan 2009. I hope you don't mind of me taking your image and overlaying onto mine in a gif movie to illustrate the difference in the nebula over time.
Both images were converted to monochrome and then resized to overlay properly. My image was done on 1-18-2009 with the 18" described below.

Joe,

I don't mind. Where I can see your image?

Carsten,

Here it is. The 18" and the ST-2000 CCD camera described below. 30/20/20/20 minutes LRGB in 5 minute subs, binned 1x1. This is a half sized image.
