Sure there is, Paul.  Like "Planet of the Apes".  What was that head ape's
name?  Cornelius was the scientist.

Subject: [AZ-Observing] Rosette and Monkey Head Nebulae

All,
Bernard Miller's 18 hour narrowband image of the Rosette Nebula inspired me
to shoot the nebula with my little-old QHY8 one-shot color camera.  Exposure
was 5x5 minutes at the Antennas site on Wednesday, Jan 18th.  In processing
I had a lot of trouble with the color balance.  On the 17th  I imaged NGC
2174 - the Monkey Head Nebula.  Steve Coe insists there is absolutely NO
monkey head in the nebula.  I disagree.

The two images are at:    http://www.pbase.com/paullind/2012
