Orion f/6 80mm ED80T-CF telescope with OVL 1x field flattener, ZWO ASI533MC Pro camera with L-eNhance filter, SkyWatcher EQ6R Pro mount.
14 8-minute lights plus calibration frames were stacked using ImagesPlus; other post-processing with SiriL, Photoshop CS2 plus Astronomy Tools plugin, and Microsoft Photo.
My most recent deep space image - the Horsehead Nebula (Barnard 33) and the Flame Nebula (NGC 2024). Both are located in Orion near the star Alnitak in Orion's belt. Barnard 33 is a small and diffuse dark nebula about 1,500 light years from Earth. NGC 2024 is an emission nebula approximately 1,350 light years from us. This is a mostly hydrogen alpha image created from red channel data captured using an L-eNhance narrowband filter that selects for hydrogen alpha, hydrogen beta, and oxygen III wavelengths of light.
