Another horsey and flame nebula

Hi everyone,

I have not posted an image for quite some time, it's been really hard to get out there with the weather and all.
So this is the first actual attempt at a decent image with my Atik 314L+ mono, and also a recently acquired Orion EON72 refractor.

There is a lot of noise in this one I know, and the colour could be much better as i didn't bin the RGB filter subs so i'm pretty short of data, but, I just wanted to post something anyway I will improve it soon, as i heard a rumour that santas workshop has a 7nm Ha filter packed and ready for delivery to my place tonight

Merry Christmas to all, and have a safe and happy holiday period.

7x 6 minute lights, 7 x R,G,B 3 minutes bin unbinned. Atik314L+ mono, Orion EON 72 refractor on a NEQ6 pro, Guided with an QHY5l-II mono and 50mm mini guidescope.

Thanks marios. The noise is reduced, but i purposely hold back on noise reduction as to me, it starts to lose sharpness, and gets blurry.

Thanks cam, I will probably make 10mins my next standard exposure length.
I'm yet to try longer but I'm interested to see how much improvement can be had with 20 or so minutes.
