      Hi all,

      Man, has it been six years since I last shot this? I fondly refer to this
      complex of dark nebulae "The Philippine Nebula", as it reminds me of the
      country I was born in. I shot it back in 2006 with in H-alpha only, and
      didn't get around to shooting it in full color until this year (with a
      different setup!).
