First try at Horsehead


Recommended Posts


Not posted here for a good while, but thought it was about time the scope and camera were allowed outside again!

Taken on 15th Jan with modded 600d, SW 80ed, guided with QHY5 on a 9x50 finder, all on top of the CG5gt mount.

10 x 6 minute subs ISO800, couple of flats, no dark frames. 

I'm not too unhappy with this one.  :smiley:

I think it's great. Dark farmes should clean it up a little once processed.

I always find that the flame nebula becomes overpowered by the red signal in modded cameras. When taken with an unmodded camera the flame seems to show a lot more variation, with blues erc showing up. There's a subtle difference in your image between the flame and the horsehead nebulousity which is nice.
