2yrs on and a M42 Revisit


Recommended Posts

Well 2 years and lots of practice I managed M42 again. Didn't even get a chance last year due to clouds and placement.

This is a combination of 15, 30, 45, 60, 180 and 300s exposures with dark, flat and bias frames. All using the EOS 30D, SW 150p guided with PHD.

2yrs ago


And now........

That is a dramatic difference. Great image. Is it purely knowledge in both acquisition and processing that has changed, or has the equipment also changed over the two years?

Thanks for the comments.

No same equipment as 2yrs ago but a lot more knowledge gained over the time.  I now take more time in focussing, guiding and getting the right balance of images: Also many hours with Photoshop over the years has helped get the best out of the images.
