Horsehead 3 1 2020 sw120 3ti Iso 800 22x180 scientific bin70 startools

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

3-1-2020. 9pm EST. Urban Sarasota, FL. The moon was near 50%. The Horsehead and Flame Nebula in Orion.

I shot 22x180sec guided subs using my Skywatcher 120ED reduced to f6 and my Canon 3ti at ISO 800. An Optolong CLS clip in filter is in place. Camera control by Astrophotography Tool (APT), guiding by PHD2 and Skywatcher Evoguide 50 with ZWO ASI 120MC-S. Stacked by DSS as 32bit Fits file with darks, flats, and bias. StarTools then setup as Bin 71, and cropped about 40%. Took all the defaults. GIMP used to make jpeg.
