Here we have a look at IC 447 and a few local objects - I will be dubbing this the Blue Tadpole (as I did not feel that creative) An interesting mix of reflection nebulae, dust clouds and more pronounced dark nebulae.

 

Great data - does not matter what scopes I have you can't beat clear, dark skies it seems :).

 

This version is aligned to my slightly more gentle, unpushed approach, trying to get the maximum from the data without going to far (been too guilty of that in the past!!)
