William Optics 71mm F 5.9 refractor with Orion 50mm mini guide scope. Synscan EQ5 goto mount. Atik 428 EX mono CCD camera with manual filter wheel and Astronomik H alpha and OIII filters.

This nebula in northern Orion is surprisingly little-known. I was pleased to get a good result with a total of 90 minutes exposure time using H alpha and OIII narrowband filters.
