About this image

I was not sure whether my unmodded 1100D would be able to capture this nebula, but it has; just. My image is flipped compared to the superb narrowband version by Graham Roberts on the Recent Observations slideshow.

Captured with Backyard EOS and stacked and processed in Pixinsight.
