This is the second image from a while back taken in the wrong place as the finder scope was off. This was meant to be IC2169 in Monoceros, it is in Monoceros but it is at RA 96.82 degrees DEC -12.99 degrees and IC2169 is not in the field of view. However - it is much more interesting than the last image. Note the extensive dark nebulosity off to the left and the very faint emission nebula lower/left of centre. There's also PLENTY of stars and a few faint background fuzzies in this one - so a bit luckier with this region of space :D

Just saw this on my flickr homepage. :)

This is what I find the most thrilling about this hobby, even if you haven't pointed the telescope at anything specific (or incorrectly, in this case) there's still a good chance that something ends up in the field of view! Just shows what's out there. :D

Absolutely right! I have thought about "random imaging" just pointing the scope wherever looks vaguely interesting (by eye) and then imaging what's there. The only problem with this approach is that we get so few evenings where I can image I can't afford the luxury of this "game" :D
