M78, ngc2071 and a piece of Barnard's Loop. 26 ten minute subs over two nights in January.
the sky was only 5/10 and transparency the same with some wind. The H alpha clouds that are everywhere in
the Orion complex are just beginning to show in the background but will require a separate layer
next year .... the sky is closed right now.. Acquired, warm pix conversion, stacking and color balance
with Nebulosity 2.0.10... Curves, saturation, star color, noise ninja in Photoshop CS3.
