Description

The Horsehead Nebula is surrounded by an amazing assortment of other nebulas ... this image was made by combining LRGB with H-a data. A Takahashi TOA 130 was used with an SBIG 16803 loaded with Astrodon filters. Off axis guiding was used and the telescope was on an A/P 1600 mount. Taken from my home in Foresthill, CA in the winter of 2015 before the El Nino of 2016 and the record setting La Nina of 2017 ... the most rain and the least night sky.
