|IC 434 - THE HORSEHEAD NEBULA|
|I captured this image at my local Astronomy club's 'Deep Sky Camp' at Tuesnoad in Kent. The visual mag was about 5.2 and the image was captured using my SC3 on MN56. No filters were used and I captured 15 X 90 secs exposures at 100% gain. The guiding on my scope was mis-behaving otherwise I would have captured a lot more exposures.
I was pleased to have got the Horsehead as it had been on my target list for a long time although, a little disappointed that I wasn't able to do longer exposures. The image was captured on 18th November 2006 at 03:09
