Horse Head nebula

At long last the clouds cleared away and I was able to have got at capturing the Horse Head Nebula in the constellation of Orion. This shot was a total of 49 shots taken with an ISO of 800 and times of 50 seconds 60 seconds and 180 seconds. To this I added 26 darks and 10 lights stacked on deep sky stacker and finished in Photoshop using levels curves colour adjustment unsharp mask and high pass filters.
Here is what came up after stacking in deep sky stacker so you can see the data before it is taken through photoshop.
