    The Horse Head Nebula in Orion was imaged from my home observatory. It is an area with intense light polution.
    To mitigate the effect of LP an IDAS-LPS2 filter was used. This is the view to the south. These pictures were taken while I was
    imaging the Rosette nebula using narrowband filters.
