The image shows the Horsehead Nebula (Barnard 33), the distinctively equine dark nebula below center that is silhouetted by the red emission nebula,
IC434. Also present are the Flame Nebula (NGC 2024) in the bottom-left corner and the blue reflection nebula NGC 2023 between the Horsehead and
Flame Nebulae. The bright star above-right of the Flame Nebula is Alnitak, the easternmost star in Orion's belt. This image was captured this image on
the same night with the same equipment and settings as his image of the Rosette Nebula.
