Horsehead + Flame in Orion (first time!)

5 posts in this topic

Just wanted to share my first attempt at the Horsehead and Flame (edit) in Orion. Not good but the weather alone, wind and setting made it really hard to get this far. The worst was when the counter weight on the mount slipped down making the whole business of taking picture a little nightmare. This is the result of 20 Light at  30 sec + darks and offset using a D7200 + DS stacker and PI and PSon my SWED80. It's my first "horsehead and Flame man" but I'm a little bit happy but realise that the ISO was too high (500), it's grainy and colour crazy.

Just thought I'd point out- you have imaged the Horsehead and Flame Nebula. The Running Man is nearer M42.

Sorry - you are absolutely right! Now I'm mortified!

Nice image.  Thanks for posting it.  It confirmed that I did indeed glimpse the HH last night with my 120mm f5 refractor.

And here are M42, M43 and the Running Man nebula. 30s x 19L x 8D x 9O at ISO 500 on D7200 and SWED80.
