IC 434ic434


Bright Nebula in Orion
Mag 9.0





19/12/14
The very faintest hint of the Emission Nebula and just a suggestion of a notch in it which is B33, The Horsehead Nebula
Needs really good dark adaption and a sharp night, which tonight is not!

16/01/15
There is a line of Mag 11 stars, just visible, and to the left is the merest hint of a haze, only noticeable when the FOV is very slightly moved backwards and forwards
Into this haze is set a dark notch, at the absolute limit of eye and brain, which is The Horsehead Nebula
