Widefield Horsehead

Recommended Posts

Hi

I remember seeing images of the horsehead nebula many years ago and thinking I need to be into this imaging game :)

and I have tried many times to get a decent image of the horsehead , but it is low in the orange gooo around here and have failed many times with various scopes

Now I have tried with my tak 106   ( f5 ) and a sx sxvr H35 and even though I am still short on data ( yes Never enough is there) I am  reasonbly happy with it

Did struggle with processing and this is my upteenth attempt and perhapes will come back to it next year

It consists of 270min lum and 270min RGB taken in 5 min subs

please see here for a high res version http://www.harrysastroshed.com/imagepages/nebulapages/horse.html

Thanks for looking

Regards

Harry

Loads of lovely nebulosity Harry! 
Had I taken this, I would be happy, and possibly printing it off to put on my wall! 
thanks for sharing

Not half bad at all 👍🏻
Not a camera I’m familiar with, but after a quick google it’s a big sensor.  Is this just a single frame and not a mosaic?

Incredible! I'd be jumping and down with joy until my legs gave way if I got an image like that, well done.

Yes just a big chip - never get enough imaging time here in the uk for a mosaic

That's lovely, Harry. Something of a change of style for you, too, as it seems to me. A softer processing which certainly suits this dusty, gassy region.

Now that is a lot of dust! Awesome capture! And I like how you handled the (very) bright stars.

Hi

I did manage to keep the brighness down - but have lost the colour to bright stars -- need to get some short subs for this -----Sometime 😬

Cheers for looking

Ooh, that's very nice indeed. I'd be delighted if I managed anything anywhere near that from my Bortle 4-3 location, nevermind anywhere afflicted with the horrid orange goo.

Lovely image Harry, I particularly like the dusty details below HH.  There is so much to look at here!

Beautiful rendition Harry, great detail in the dark dust, and lovely colour.  As said major stars controlled well.
