Ngc7023 Iris Nebula


My first attempt at the iris nebula, a beautiful reflection nebula roughly 1300 light years from earth. I was pleased to capture some of the dark dust and bring that out, but I had some serious dirt on the sensor in the luminance layer. Hopefully get back to this one next year and get a cleaner run.
