Description

Iconic Horsehead Nebula. First time I tried to photographe this was 2015 here in Finland. That time it was a winter day in January temperature being -24 deg C. I drove some 40 km from Helsinki to a dark site I had scouterd, put up my Astrotrac and Nikon unmodded DSLR and TS 71mm/F4.9.

Almost frose my fingers for good trying to make the set up work. Sat in the running car and took abt 40 mins of light or so....just to figure at home that the focus was totally out...but hey, at least I tried!

On this one I have each L,R,G,B for 24 X 3 mins.
