The Horse Head, IC434, Orion Nebula (M42), and M78 Mosaic, Jose Mtanous

This project became an obsession, it took me very long to complete the RGB data capture. The total integration time is +90h between Ha and RGB.

Mosaic of 4 tiles, Ha around 15h per of 30 subs per tile, total time around 60h. RGB 2h per filter per tile, total time 32h.

M78 6h RGB data taken with same camera/filters with Epsilon 160.
