Ok I know I’m suddenly cranking out the space jams like it’s 1996 but the conditions haven’t been at all favourable until yesterday. I set up in the rain tonight (stupid, I know), then had to pull it all down in the drizzle later, but somehow by the grace of the great cat goddess in the sky managed to take a mere 19 minutes of exposures to create this, NGC 6357 “Lobster” Nebula. What an amazing emission nebula! I hereby dub thee, Flying Spaghetti Monster Nebula!
