Greetings!

 

I went out last night and imaged the Flaming Star Nebula. I was finally able to get a decent amount of integration time in, compared to most nights. This is the result of four hours of total exposure time. I hope you like it!

Beautiful picture. Billy Henry did a piece  about Flaming Star Nebula on PBS this morning.

I’m a visual observer. May look for it with some filters, maybe I’ll see something.
