IC434, Barnard 33, NGC2024 in H-Alpha

This image of IC434, Barnard 33 (the Horse Head Nebula), and NGC2024 (the Flame Nebula) is the start of a larger project.  This monochrome image was taken in Hydrogen Alpha light during a nearly full moon (H-Alpha is essentially immune to moon light pollution).  Colour will be added later when more imaging time presents itself.
