NEQ6 Pro Mount, ASI1600MM-Cool, Astronomik 6nm (Ha, SII & OIII) filters, QHY5L-II guidecam, MaximDL for image acquisition and Pixinsight for processing.

Flaming star nebula taken from my back garden in the light polluted skies of London. For me, astronomy is not a hobby but a passion and when you first take an image such as this, it is such an amazing feeling knowing that you were capturing those photons as they were reaching your telescope. Then when you realize how far away this object is, I think anyone will be nothing short of amazed.
