@JOC Yes. That's the Horse Head nebula. Sits just below the lefthand star (Alnitak) in Orion's belt

Ah, then there is a good chance I've looked at it without even realising.  It's no doubt like many of these DSO vastly enhanced in magnification and visibility by astrophotography.  I tend to only see the trapezium nebula area in Orion and don't really have much idea of all the other interesting things around it.

It’s a tricky one to see. Have a read here to confirm your sightings 👍🏻
