Image catalogue: 


The rather grainy photograph is, of course, the Horsehead Nebula. The print is made from a photograph of a
print, hence the increase in contrast and grain. Exposure time about 30 minutes on Tri-X at the prime focus of our 4-cm reflector. Object
in lower left is NGC 2023 (I'm not sure of the number; correct me if I'm wrong).\

(Scanned from monochrome reproduction in AstroNotes, just to make matters worse!)
