An image of the Homunculus Nebula has been uploaded

Hi all,

The Homunculus Nebula is a true challenge for any amateur telescope. Some good amateur pictures of it can be found in the web, and I wanted to try with the CDK 20″, located at the SSO, Australia. The result can be found at:

NGC 3372-Caldwell 92 (core region)

This page already has NGC 3372 as it was taken more than a year ago. I have added the Homunculus Nebula (its shape is clearly spotted, although no big detail shows up, image at center) as well as the same image of NGC 3372 with the Homunculus Nebula blended into its right place and orientation (image at right).
