The_Zeta-Orionis_Region.jpg
The Zeta Orionis Region1275 viewsImage of the Zeta Orionis Region in the constellation Orion, which contains both the horsehead and flame nebula. This is a visible light image taken with a modified Canon 40D and a Takahashi Epsilon 180 f/2.8 astrograph (3hr 15 min total exposure). It is interesting to compare it to Jim's Narrowband Image (6th previous image) of the area which essentially maps the concentration of Hydrogen, Oxygen, and Sulfur.

Narrowband Horsehead region1585 viewsThis is a narrowband image of the Horsehead nebula (B33) region in Orion taken with the Tzec Maun telescope in Mayhill. The "Horsehead" is actually a cold, thick, dark gas that is blocking the light from the bright (emission) nebula behind it. Hydrogen is indicated with red, sulfur is in green (yellow is a combination of hydrogen and sulfur) and Blue is Oxygen. The dats was collected back in January 2011 (3.5 hours worth) and processed by Steve. Thanks Steve !

Horsehead nebula1104 viewsThe Horsehead is a dark globule of dust and non-luminous gas, obscuring the light coming from behind, especially the moderately bright nebula IC 434. It is the most remarkable feature of an interesting region of diffuse nebulae, which belongs to a huge cloud of gas and dust situated 1,600 light years away in the direction of constellation Orion. The bright reflection nebula in the lower left is NGC 2023.
