Description

I decided that the next target on my list would be the Flame and Horsehead nebulae, since they are pretty well positioned and I can frame them pretty well with my new gear.

Taken over two nights, I used NINA to capture 5, 60, and 180 second exposures. Each morning I also took flats, as I am trying to be more consistent with my calibration files.

I'm pretty happy with the results, especially for only doing about an hour's worth of processing.
