NGC434 - B33

Horsehead Nebula complex in Orion

Image
24x300sec at ISO800

Camera

Hutech Modified Canon T1i with Explore Scientific Coma Corrector and

Instrument
Modified Explore Scientific 208mm f3.9 Newtonian Astrograph

Mount
Losmandy G11 Gemini Version 1.04

Guiding
Celestron 80mm f5 Nextstar
Orion Starshooter autoguide camera
Losmandy Guide scope and guide camera rings

Image taken on November 20, 2017 at the Louisville Astronomical Society James G. Baker center for Astronomy, at Curby, Indiana

Note: This instrument is a work in progress. It is new but came with design problems that had to be meshed out. One (hopefully final) issue to work out is that the secondary mirror holder is slightly rotated, which is likely the cause of the split diffraction spikes.

Enjoy:

Even with the split diffraction spikes it's a nice picture. That's pretty good detail. Thanks for posting it. You might also consider posting it in the C-D photography forum. I'm sure people over there would enjoy it. Thirty-two people have viewed it so far on this forum. I'm surprised no one else has bothered to comment.

Amazing.

I prefer the naked eye contact tho, or assisted with a cam visual observation... It is a little bit more natural, but not as pretty as this
