Alnitak, Flame & Horsehead Nebulae

Flame Nebula and surrounding area in Orion.

EOS 7D Mk II (unmodified)

EF 70-200mm F4 L USM

Skywatcher Star Adventurer mount.

ISO 1600 and 50 sec exposures 200mm F4.5

30+ minutes of integration (not enough)

Darks, Flats, Dark Flats and BIAS

Second time using this mount, first light for the 70-200. My post processing is terrible, needs more practice and maybe a tutorial or 50. I am, however, happy with the tracking and performance of the mount and the lens. This uncropped image displays round, pinpoint stars right out to the corners of the frame - zoom in to check :-)

Processed in DSS & Lightroom 5.7.1 only

I Must get the latest Adobe photography package (LR & PS) to get better image stretching.
