IC 434: The Horsehead Nebula


October 6-7, 2010 were simply stellar nights for viewing and photographing here in Washington. In the upcoming days, I’ll be putting up some of the nicest images that I think I’ve ever put together. So far, my favorite one is The Horsehead Nebula. Every time I read about this, I always read about how difficult it is to see visually. However, I didn’t find it difficult to image at all! And, as a surprise bonus, NGC 2024, The Flame Nebula snuck into my field of view!

The removable nosepiece gives a pretty simple t-thread mount and it’s pretty short, so generally I try to bring things to this camera without the nosepiece when possible.

Televue generously puts up a large collection of imaging adapters for the NP101is (and 127is) scopes at More >
