paulgrover68 Posted October 24, 2020 Share Posted October 24, 2020 I took this one on Thursday - I surprisingly clear night. My first target was the cave nebula, but after I flipped the scope over the meridian I shot some flats and when I continued my resolution had changed. So I lost 2/3 of the data.When Orion rose I took the opportunity for 2 hours of 3 min exposures on the Horsehead and Flame. This nebula means a lot as I remember seeing a photo at Greenwich Planetarium and thinking it was very cool. I was about 9 and thought there is no way I could ever take a picture like it.I have some issues - some of the bright stars are little misshapen - I'll need to work on controlling monster stars - always open to suggestions. I started a little early (12.30!) so it was all little low (by little I mean a lot). When I processed I ended up with a dark variant and brighter one... this version is kind of in the middle.
