Nebula Sh2-264 - 30 January 2012

After a long pause I tried to catch this large object of winter sky.


Nebula Sh2-264 - 29 December 2008

Weather, weather, weather. Almost three months was the situation awful. I was nervous and I felt discontinuation symptoms. All changed at the end of the year. Sky was clear and I had good conditions for astronomy. I decided to improve quality of picture with Barnad's loop (Sh2-276) and nebula Sh2-264 in constellation of Orion. But in the end I captured only part because (yes – you guessed) of the weather. End of the last year was not good astronomy in this locality. This is picture with faint nebula Sh2-264.
