The Horsehead is a difficult nebula to photograph for me. This shot was taken with a Takahashi TSA102 on a G-11 mount manually guided. Exposure was 1 hour in Ha. Post-processed in K3CCDtools and CS2/fits Liberator.

Carpe Noctum

Mortal as I am, I know that I am born for a day. But when I follow at my pleasure the serried multitude of the stars in their circular course, my feet no longer touch the earth.
