B30

Managed to get out last night and got this image.

One you don't see very often.

It's part of the large (but dim) SH2-264 nebula, known as Orion's Head (or the angel fish). This nebula is 8 degrees wide. That's about 16 full moons!! So this bit is only the top corner of it. It has no name but is annotated as B30-2225. I think it refers to the dark nebula in the image.

This is 3 hours in Ha taken in 10 minute subs. Then messed about in Photoshop to bring out the details.
