This is a photo I have always wanted to take and what really "floats my boat" in the astronomy world.
Taken last night at a friends house near Lincoln, I managed to capture this between the clouds.
This emission nebula is over 1600 light years away .... and you thought it was a long walk to the corner shop !!
Taken using a 120mm Refracting telescope and a modified Canon 450D camera at prime focus.
