As Gemini returns to our winter skies, this narrowband image of the "Jellyfish" nebula would seem to be appropriate for November. Image details are Takahashi FSQ 106 and SBIG ST10 camera, guided by a 16" RCOS and using adaptive optics. The image is mapped colour of 120 minutes HA (red), 60 mins S11 (green), and 130 mins HB (blue).
