The Flame and Horsehead Nebula


The Flame and Horsehead Nebula

The Flame and Horsehead Nebula are located just west of the star Alnitak, which is the bottom star in Orion's Belt.


--- The technical stuff ---
The above images were captured by an Orion 80mm ED Refractor mounted on a SkyWatcher AZ-EQ5 GT equatorial, and my Nikon D3100 DSLR. The camera was set at ISO 1600 and mutiple(20+) one minute images of each object are captured and then stacked in DeepSkyStacker and enhanced in GIMP.
