IC434 – The Horsehead Nebula

I went to the OCA dark site in Anza, CA on October 21st with a pretty big list of targets for the night: M33, IC434 and NGC2237… I was hoping I could at least spend 2 hours on each target. I started with M33 but it is not the first one I will present here as I am not really satisfied with it yet. Fortunately, IC434 is much more adapted to the Field of View of my 500D on the AT65EDQ.
