Description
The image shows a narrowband image of one of the most frequently imaged nebula in the night sky, the Horsehead and Flame nebulae plus associated emission and reflection nebula. Due to light pollution narrowband filters were used and combined using a LRGB combine with Ha:Ha:SII:OIII being asigned to LRGB in that order, while this image stays close to the more traditional colours of this subject the narrowband filters have helped bring out more detail.
