BBC Stargazing Live pic for 2013

In the spirit of BBC Stargazing Live I went out last night to try and capture the Cone Nebula...and was rewarded with a couple of hours of cloud dodging...

The useful frames were combined into this image.  The image is quite noisy due to the low number of exposures added.  Notice the monkey's head in the centre of the nebula complex.

  1. Looks pretty good to me. At least we got some clear skies to go with BBC stargazing last night. I don't think Stuart and EAS were so lucky tonight :-(
