IC349 Barnard’s Merope Nebula

Thought I’d try and get the Merope Nebula as the whole Pleiades don’t fit in my FOV. But saw a flaw beneath Merope which turned out to be another nebula.

NGC 2024 Flame Nebula RGB

Wasn’t expecting it to be clear so this is a bonus. Only managed 5 of each colour though so quite noisy and Alnitak overpowers eveything.
