ok, I admit it. This is one of my favorite targets. The inspiring horsehead. I had imaged it with my 8″ LX200, but I wanted to try with the new setuo, with its bigger FOV.
Here we are, together with the Flame. The bright star is Alnitak, a magnitude 2 beast, which floods the image with its powerful light. This imposes some challenges for the processing tasks.
This image is a cropped version. Original one is even wider. But it seems that my alignment was not quite good that day, and some field rotation is shown in the original one.
