The same night I took my M42 images, I also imaged the Horsehead and the Flame nebula, right up there in the Orion constellation.

I think you can tell how these nebulas got their names :)

This is a great shot. One of my favorite objects to image. What is the light pollution level you are shooting in?

wow that is awesome. Thanks for sharing. No problem, half the fun of photos is sharing them with friends, whether they are online or in person.

This is a great shot. One of my favorite objects to image. What is the light pollution level you are shooting in? To be honest, I'm not sure on my light pollution level. It's pretty dark here at night. I am imaging from anywhere between 20-40 miles away from Anchorage, Alaska. If I image in Anchorage's direction, I get some pretty nasty LP, but otherwise its nice.

this is very cool stuff! Thanks. I agree!

Yes, I took these myself.

I'm not sure if I'm allowed to talk about other forums? If not, please whatever mod reads this, remove it.

Otherwise, go to AstronomyForum.net and check it out, it is where I learned everything.

Be forewarned, I've got about $3500 into my setup to take pictures like this, it isnt cheap. And this is just a middle of the line setup, a good camera for taking pictures of nebulas and other not very bright objects would add another $2000 or so, then if you want to do narrowband you need to add another $1500 in filters, so pushing it to around $7000... it starts adding up fast.

REALLY fast. Excellent images.
