IC434 and B33

This incredible Orion neighbourhood is always fun to image! It has been 3 years since 2018 so I gave it a try again. Unfortunately clouds have been very persistent, only 4 hours of data was captured. Nice to compare with the two previous attempts with the Esprit120 (December 2018) and with the C11 (March 2018)
