A wide view of this area, showing something of the Taurus dark nebulosity complex.

This an very good picture. It show's the dark nebulae nicely.

It is something we don't normally associate with Taurus. Or the winter Milky Way.

Hi Ray

It has been a while! I really like this shot. I trot a talk on dark nebulae around and would welcome use of this if you are happy . If you are , can you send me an uncompressed version, or less compressed. I always acknowledge sources.

Best wishes

Nick - happy to oblige! The BAA members' page server seems to be very dodgy - I will send a better quality version to you direct.
