M3 - A globular in Canes Venatici

This globular is almost as big on the sky as M13 and a delight to observe visually, as well as to photograph.
Taken in April 2015 from Austerfield with the ODK12 and an M25C in a series of 60sec frames unguided. This was during the setting up of the ODK, so not a bad overall result looking back on the log. A re-processing of the subject to favour the colouring of the stars, in Photoshop. No flats or other calibration used.

The Monkey Head Nebula NGC 2174

NGC 2174 (also known as Monkey Head Nebula) is an H II emission nebula located in the constellation Orion and is associated with the open star cluster NGC 2175. It is thought to be located about 6,400 light-years away from Earth. The nebula may have formed through hierarchical collapse.
