There have been a few good clear nights recently, with temperatures really starting to drop in the UK. It’s getting to the time of year when Orion is just starting to creep into my view before midnight, so it’s a great chance to start a widefield mosaic starting with the Horsehead. I’m having a problem with worm adjustment on the EQ6, so the stars on here are a little bit out in RA.
