M78 Reflection Nebula in Orion

M78 taken on Jan 24, 2020. 300×30 sec, gain 42, offset 42, -20C, UHC-S filter, QHY183c, TV-85 at F/5.6.

This one was difficult to bring out the nebula since the UHC-S filter blocks some of the blue that this object predominantly shines in.  But, it captures enough of the OIII, Hydrogen Alpha and Beta light to produce an image even from the heavily light-polluted location that I’ve been imaging from.
