Description

This is my first attempt at the horsehead nebula, where I unfortunately had to scrap half of my 2min lights due to insufficient quality. Still, I am very happy with the result and only 20min of usable exposure time.

I would appreciate comments/feedback on the edit very much!

Observation site: Sofienalpe, Vienna, Austria
