Description

The Horsehead and Flame nebula in Orion. Data acquired in December shooting under high clouds ,90% moon illumination and high humidity. I need to add some RGB data as well in the future.

Overall the weather did not co-operate much but for 10h of integration time I think it's a solid start to further improve in the future.
