The Alnitak area in Orion is one of my favourite areas of sky. The star Alnitak is the brightest star in this image and is the eastern most star of Orion's Belt.
Below Alnitak is The Flame Nebula (NGC 2024) and to the right is one of the most famous nebula in the sky- The Horsehead Nebula (Barnard33) in the emission nebula IC434 (The pinkish area surrounding The Horsehead). Exposure times: 13 X 5 minute exposures (1 hour 5 minutes total exposure time)
