Looks like an out of focus image of Bigfoot to me! :) Seriously though, I'm enjoying this thread. ?

Too easy?

It was the colour. Most people process it in shades of red. Maybe all pics should be B&W.

This is a great thread. Well done @Rodd

It is encouraging us all to look a little deeper at our images, and see things we may have missed or overlooked before.

Thank-you Rodd ??

How about radio telescope technology--that way the clouds won't matter!

It's actually quite sunny here. Even during the night. But I'm not into solar imaging.

Window shopping only, unfortunately. But I may make a few small investments by the time darkness returns.

I think Hunter has a photographic atlas of the heavens in his head!.  That;s correct.

Looks almost like another section of the Heart nebula, but probably isn't. The palette suggests a narrowband target, though. The soul nebula, perhaps?

No...This one is much less frequently seen I think, though this particular feature is in the main portion, which is often imaged by itself.

Searched the net for narrow band candidates. Found a lot of interesting targets, some of which I may image in the future. But couldn't find this detail. Btw, the dark structure looks very much like the snake nebula, but it's in the wrong place.

I'll say.  Is it the little galaxy in the middle?  Or the faint nebulosity?

This feature can be seen from the blue highway, the one you take to see the Lions
