First attempt at M42

Recommended Posts

This is my first attempt at M42. Used a Celestron C8 on an EQ5 (unguided). EOS 50D (unmodded) and Atik clip filter as I live in a highly light polluted area. 10x90 exposures, ISO1250, stacked in K3CCD. Any feedback very welcome.

Given the challenges of light pollution you have this is a very good image - and alos considering it's unguided. I think your focus might be a little off which might be the reason for the soft stars, other than that it's a great image!:icon_salut:

Thats an impressive amount of red with an unmodded DSLR. A fine 1st attempt.
