Continuing with Orion, here is the Horsehead and Flame nebula. This is a very faint region and a scope is needed to see this and a large one at that! Thankfully you don’t need to do that as I took a nice long exposure image for you!
The Horsehead is in fact an area of dark dust that is stopping the light from glowing Hydrogen gas shining through – it’s roughly 1500 light years from us and has to be one of the most striking objects in the night sky to image.
This was taken with a modified Canon 350d DSLR and is a combination of several long exposures – I cannot remember the exact details but it would likely have been several hours of 10 minute images.
