Description

I thought I may as well join the 'Flame and Horsehead' imagers ;-)

The bright star to the left of centre is Alnitak which is the leftmost one of the three in Orion's belt as viewed in the Northern hemisphere.

First time out for ZWO EAF autofocuser with Deep Sky Dad dovetail kit - worked beautifully.

Processed as HaRGB in APP, StarTools, StarNet++,Gimp.

29 Jan 2021 - Reprocessed using Starnet++ and tone mapping. Brings out much more detail in the nebulosity.
