Horsehead Nebula - Columbus TX - January 2021


Recommended Posts

This image was first light in January for the Altair 26C I bought in December.  I was blown away at the stack just out of calibration and integration using only flats to calibrate.  I was through 2 or 3 rounds of processing when my laptop HD failed costing me everything I had captured with a dedicated camera up to that point.  Lesson learned and I have multiple backups now lol.

 

I recently started playing around with non-linear star reduction and wanted to share this "final" version of own of my favorite images taken so far.

 

Cheers

Looks great. The Flame nebula certainly lives up to it's name in this image.
