Flaming Star Nebula

This is my first real attempt at astrophotography that I'm willing to post publicly :)


This is the Flaming Star Nebula (IC405) on the right and left is the Tadpole Nebula (IC410). This was taken with an unmodified Canon 5dmkIII and William Optics Zenithstar 81 telescope (with field flattener) on a Skywatcher HEQ5Pro mount (no guiding).


It is a stack of 45 exposures at iso 1600 and 60s. Dark, Flat and Bias calibration frames were used and image was processed in PixInsight and Photoshop.
