This image of M46 was taken on the 5th April 2015. The equipment used was a SkyWatcher Startravel 102mm refractor, SynScan alt-az mount and Canon 600D DSLR.

The image is composed from x44 twenty five second exposures at ISO 1600 plus x50 dark frames, x50 flat frames and x50 bias frames.

Images were stacked in DSS and the master image processed in StarTools.

The planetary nebula NGC 2438 can be seen in the frame.
