The Elephant’s trunk Nebula

Clear last night so I tried the "Heffalump".  The whole surrounding nebulosity would need at least a 4 pane mosaic.  2h 10mins (clouds stole another 10mins!) of 5min subs.  ED120APO, reducer, Canon 1000D modded, ISO 100, EQ6, Guided with QHY5/ST80/PHD.  Flats and bias to calibrate.

I must admit somewhat fainter than anticipated and in dire need of more data!  But I'm happy to be able to tick another target off the list.
