The Horsehead and Flame Nebulae

25,002.500,00 (IVA tax inc.)


The Horsehead Nebula, IC434, and the Flame Nebula NGC2024, are two amazing targets of the winter sky (northern hemisphere). Due to the high brightness of Alnitak it’s quite difficult to get some decent results in this field. This was one of the reasons that made me escape from that bright star in my past pictures of this region.

The Orion constellation is full of amazing nebulae. Most of them are part of the same dusty cloud, mainly composed of ionized hydrogen that emits really strong in the H alpha spectral line. The use of narrow band filters allows us to detect all these emissions. This image shows the area that surrounds the Horsehead Nebula full of molecular clouds from the Orion Molecular Cloud Complex.

This image is the “second light” of my new ASI294MM-Pro. I have chosen this target, including Alnitak star, due to the difficulty of capturing this bright star in terms of reflections and microlensing effects.

Support my work. If you want to help me continue with my work, please feel free to buy, just for a few pennies, one or several of my images. The price does not reflect the amount of effort involved in each one of the images. Some of them implied weeks, months and even years of hard work. With your purchase I will be able to continue capturing photons of our amazing universe.
