Messier M78 - NGC2068 - Reflection Nebula in Orion - 25/1/2015 (Processed cropped stack)
Imaged at Perth Observatory site.
On a variable and gusty night, this is my best capture of this to date. Still dark skies with longer subs and plenty of them would be required to do this intriguing object justice.
