Hi all - here's NGC 2175, the Monkey Head Nebula, situated just above Orion's raised arm. This is unfiltered, but looks like it would be worth adding Ha.

 

ZWO ASI071MC + WO GT81IV

12 x 300s, gain 90

20 darks, 20 flats, 100 bias.

 

Stacked in Astro Pixel Processor, finished in Photoshop.

C&c welcome.

Nice image.  Try adding some more Light's or Ha.  After you are done processing rotate it 180 degrees.

Thank you, Jim! Guilty of giving this one less attention than it deserved while waiting for the Flying Spaghetti Monster (well at least the Spaghetti Nebula) to appear. I was thinking "how is that anything like a monkey head?"
