Hi Dan. A splendid Barnard 59 dark nebula image on the flickr site with the Astro-Tech AT90ED. Well framed and lots of nice crisp details. As for a name, how about "Dark Spider Nebula"? Thanks for sharing this capture taken at the Danville Conservation Area with us Dan, and keep your great work coming on here.
