Planetary nebulae HFG-1 (upper-left) and Abell-1 (lower-right).  This is how I made use of the unusually long run of clear, moonless nights this week.  HFG-1 is zipping through the galaxy at between 29 and 59 km/s, producing a bow shock and leaving a long tail.

Ditto. Your compositions are always so wonderfully unique. Whenever I see "kathyastro" in the "Recent Topics" list... I'm already smiling before I even click on it.    bow.gif
