Horsehead Nebula - 5.5hrs

Recommended Posts

So this is the most data I've had on any image so far, and what a difference it makes!

Here's 5.5 hours in 5 minute subs. I think I've got about as much as I can get out of it.

I had some horrendous gradients from light pollution and after removing them I lost a bit of the fainter detail, but despite that, I'm proper chuffed with this one! :D

Very nice :D

i found when I did some DBE on PI, it killed the red natural gradient, my Final I posted i just used flats and no DBE, the upper right of the horse head is very red, this was the only way I could keep so.
