The Horsehead Nebula, made famous by some stunning images taken from the Hubble Space Telescope. This is a small dark nebula that is silhouetted against the glow of the emission nebula IC434. This nebula is found just south of the leftmost star in Orion's belt and is around 1600 lightyears away from the earth. Taken with a modified Canon 450D and 8" SCT scope.
