Quote:I, like a lot of us, have the horse's head on my todo list but with an 8" scope, I haven't had any success. I've always heard that if you can't see the flame nebula, the horse's head is not going to show itself and I"d never seen it either. Tonight, when I went east of Alnitak, there was a very dim flame complete with the black lane! Wow, if I can see that, just maybe I can see the HH?
A man is a small thing, and the night is very large and full of wonders.
