Description

This is a LRGB image of the Horsehead Nebula (IC434) and its surroundings. My processing was pretty basic and I did not even tweak the colors too much. In addition to the usual objects there is quite some darkish nebulosity visible in a large region below the horsehead. For the second version I used shorter-exposure data with HDRComposition to reduce the sizes of the brightest stars.

- LRGB composite with 20x600 sec of luminance data and 3x18x300 sec for RGB
- data taken at the Deep Sky West Observatory
