    Default Horsehead Nebula HaRGB 17 Hrs



    I think I might add another 3 hours of Ha (weather permitting), but this is what I've been able to get on the Horsehead for this year. It's, by far, the most amount of time I've ever spent on this particular target, so I might just move on to M42, unless you all think an additional 3 hours of Ha will make much difference. Comments are appreciated! Anyway, here's the particulars:

    RGB:
    TV85/.8xFF-FR/QHY10
    71 Lights @600s @-20C
    30 Flats ADU25000
    20 Dark
    100 Bias

    Ha:
    TV85/.8xFF-FR/QHY9M/Baader 7nm Ha Filter
    20 Lights @900s @-20C
    25 Flats ADU25000
    20 Dark
    100 Bias

    Total Integration Time=17hrs.
    Processed with PixInsight and tweaked with PSCS5.
    Hope ya like it!

    Oh my gosh, that is an insanely beautiful, remarkable image. You should be very proud of it. It looks like it was done with the Hubble! Thank you for sharing it.

    Might add another 3 hours? You can't improve on perfection.

    Well done!

    Wow Tom! That is a think a beauty! I love everything about this image. You even picked up Alnitak's companion star (Ab), which I don't see very often. I love that you want to round it up and make it 20...I would do the same lol. Well done!
