B33 Horsehead

Updated: 1.9.03

Here's another view of the Horsehead nebula, taken from a light polluted home environment (mag 3.5 skies) with a 62% full moon. It's amazing what narrowband H-alpha filtering can do in such a situation, allowing imaging to occur when normally not feasible! More time would help to improve the signal to noise.
