M78 blast from the past

Another old image from the New Forest Observatory taken with the original Hyperstar and a little SXV H9C one-shot colour camera (1.4 megapixels only!).  The camera was highly sensitive and I regret selling it when I bought the APS-sized chip M25C.  This image of M78 was taken using just two hours of total imaging time showing the enormous speed (f#1.85) of the original Hyperstar.
