A little Iris on the side...

Here is another shot taken from my recent expedition to the Okie-Tex Star Party. I was going after the dark nebulosity of LDN 1148 (the scorpion tail in the center), but decided to go wide and add the Iris nebula (blue reflection nebula on the left).

This large dust field is in the Cepheus area. I love these dark, spooky, vistas.

I stand amazed...and I was even there. What a great shot and the rest are priceless. May I share this with the Oklahoma City Astronomy Club?
