This image above of the flame and horsehead was one of the first shots taken with the William Optics 105 f/6.5 scope on October 5, 2002. The moon was up, but it still came out surprisingly well for a quick test shot.

A closer shot of the horsehead nebula in Orion. Taken taken from Sunglow Ranch in Arizona on January 18, 2002. LRGB, 25, 15, 15, 15 minute total exposures, 10" LX-200 f/10 with 6.3 focal reducer. 

The lens flare is from the bright star Alnitak just out of the frame to the left. 

The horsehead itself is a dark nebula (Bernard-33) visible because of the bright nebula IC 434 behind it. The nebula in the lower left is NGC 2023.
