Hi all:

vdB 44 is a small reflection nebula in a dusty region about 1 degree west of NGC 1977 (Running Man) in Orion:

Sure hope so, our system is shorter focal length and spring is not target-rich for those objects.....

Looks great!  Still waiting for them to set up our system but this year is sadly looking unlikely at this point. :(

Hi all:

Barnard (B) 34 is a small dark nebula in Auriga, a little under 2 degrees west of M37.  Unlike many of the Barnard dark nebulae that obscure the stars, this one is more like a thin veil over the background stars:

LRGB, 6 hours total exposure

A great resource for those interested in Barnard's catalog can be found here:

Nope, I definitely checked the "more" dropdown this AM and there were only two options "All messages by this member" and "Report this message", which is what you get when it is not your own post. I was logged in as well. It is almost like it did not know who I was....

Very odd but works now. Could have been some funky browser behavior. Chrome has been doing some odd things lately on this machine.
