Flame and Horse Head Nebulae

Flame and Horse Head Nebulae
The Flame Nebula (NGC 2024, with the nearby iconic Horse Head Nebula. Click to see a larger image.

Just under 4 hours of data went into this image, 39 exposures of 360 seconds each with the 40mm lens at f/5.6 and ISO 1600.  I still want to go back with the 200mm lens and get this in the same frame with the Orion Nebula, but, now I also want to get the Orion Nebula with this lens, too.  Luckily, the choice is which one first, not just which one.  Shot Oct. 22, 23 and/or 24 (2 of those) in the wee hours…and I just got around to processing it.  Close up below just cropped from the above image.
