Object name: B33 Horsehead Nebula
Apparent RA: 5 41 10  Apparent Dec: -2 27 44
Constellation: Orion

A clear midweek night, and some 20 frames of the horse head region. I have used 2x2 binning just to make life easier - I am still getting back into the imaging habit. A very transparent evening has allowed for quite a bit of faint detail to show especially on the horse's neck.
