Horse Head Nebula Region - 7 Hrs 20 Mins
« on: 12:28:43, 19 December, 2017 »
Another image I have struggled to get more data on, so again I have decided to process what I have (I was aiming for 10 hours) and post regardless.

I have included both a full from version and a cropped version. both resized to 1000 pixels max (from the original 4500x3600).

Equipment listed below. Captured, Guided (Dithered) and Calibrated in Maxim DL 6.13. Processed in PSCS3E.

I will try a different target next time out perhaps M42 in Ha (I seem to recall Simon doing an excellent example last year).

As usual C&C welcome, thanks for looking.  ATB Jim

Thanks Mark.

I could have easily brightened the image, but I wanted to try and preserve the folds of nebulosity. Thanks again Jim
