The Running Man


the Running Man Nebula in Orion consists of  some NGC objects like NGC1973, NGC1975 and NGC1977.  Clouds and rain prevented me from taking more frames. But I am happy to have the opportunity to image this beautiful nebula.
Imaged with the Moravian G2-8300 at my 12″ f/4 Newtonian with L:R:G:B=210:150:160:70minutes. So the total exposure time was 10 hours. Subexposures were 30 minutes for L and 10 minutes for RGB. Because of some bright stars I added 12 frames L with 2 minutes exposure time each and blended them with the remaining frames in Photoshop.
