Quote Unfortunately this night the full moon was up, so it was near impossible to do any imaging at all, which is visible in this picture. We wanted to try out our new astronomik CLS filter, the full-moon however prevented us from this. In this image the horsehead is just barely visible, even though we gathered a total of 16 minutes of data. This is a target which we will try again next time (when the moon won't be up). Quote
