Amazingly detailed Horsehead shot in IR to make it almost transparent.

Yeah, but I like your shot of NGC 4565 (full crop), too!

It is a great photo.
I had heard this photo was coming. I was also informed that there was to be some kind of special concerning it. They asked for amateur photos to add to their release, but I see none here. Not sure but there may be a big TV special about it eventually.

Here's a link to the full meal deal. Renowned amateur, Robert Gendler, did the composites and processing:
