Description:

Hi In spite of being one of the most photographed deep sky objects, I always find a challenge to image the region of Alnitak, IC434 and Barnard 33 (aka horse head nebula). This was taken from the suburban area of Bogot√°, Colombia (8 million people city) and a Bortle 5 sky with 5hr total exposure in the nights of January 2nd and 4th 2022. Captured with NINA. Pre and post processed with PixInsight.
