Horsehead Nebula (IC434) & VdB 52
———————————
Thanks to a record breaking summer of rain and flash flooding, this image was slowly exposed over several months through any potential gap in the clouds. What it lacks in exposure time I’ve made up for processing the hell out of it until it was adequate! I wanted to get in nice and close and frame the iconic chess piece with the interesting blue reflection nebula below it. For a super deep dive into what you’re looking at and how this all works see my video here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WsQxB8sat38
