Title: IC 434
Post by: Zocky on 2014 November 08 17:03:44
Winter sky objects are slowly rising :)
This shot of Horsehead was taken on early morning just before sunrise. Unfortunately the sky was hazy and due to that image is not as detailed as it should be.
Image acquired with Skywatcher ED80 and SBIG ST8300m.
Exposure: L 5x10 min.; RGB 5x5 min. (bin 2x2); Ha 5x15 min.

Very nice!  I'm hoping to get an opportunity to photograph this area this Winter.  Orion is my favorite area to image.  It has so much to offer.

Thnx Wade.
Yes, Orion is full of sky treasure. I am trying to capture whole constellation for a 3 years, but weather is not cooperative.

Very nice, I only wonder if the background could be raised a bit.

Thnx Andrea.
I don`t think I can do much more. The image is already overstreched.
