This is 1 frame stracked with 2 darks and 2 flats just to give an indication how dynamic this nebula is

Cheers

Happy New Year

I see it and its a very interesting target, especially thinking it may have already gone super-nova.
Clear skies.

I've found when this forum's server refuses to show an image, if I hold down the shift key and hit the reload button it usually appears. Sometimes need to do it twice. At least it works with Firefox.

Northerners need to see this one visually to get the real impact. I finally got a chance to see it under rather poor skies a few years ago in a 14" f/7 scope in northrn New Zealand. A fantastic object with nothing really comparable in my northern skies. No fair you get this and M42 in your skies.
