This is not a terribly inspiring picture, but interesting nevertheless. It shows a large emission nebula in the NE arm of galaxy M33. Taken under a bright moon. The unresolved dim stars in the background are part of M33. I have read that this is the largest emission nebula ever discovered... doesn't really feel like that when looking at the picture.
Location: Curdridge, Southampton, UK. 51N 15W.
