M78

Recommended Posts

Not seen imaged very often this one, probably because its not particularly spectacular, but its was there, and was one that I hadn't done before.

Could have done with few more subs, or longer exposure, but at nearly 02.00 hrs, I was ready for bed :D

6x400 sec subs, 12" LX200R + f/6.3 FR, and SXVF-H9C

That must be the first shot I've ever seen of this seldom discussed Messier. I like it!

Is it a field of view thing Dave, that makes this M78 different from Steves?

His image has two sections, so I am guessing you have imaged just one part of it.

Looks good though.

Ron.

The 12" has a focal length of over 3m, so even with a focal reducer in, its still a much smaller FOV, than my 10" was for example.

I could have used the 3.3 FR, which would have given wider FOV.

Not sure what the second object is in Steve's image.
