Mike Lancaster captured this image of M78 the 20th February 2014. It is a stack of five frames of 120s seconds each taken with a Mallincam Xtreme X2 camera at AGC 5 using an MFR5 focal reducer and Astronomik CLS-CCD filter through a 10" Meade LX200 ACF SCT. No guiding was employed. The images were stacked, cropped and processed in Nebulosity v3 with further processing using Photoshop Elements and Astronomy Tools.
