Orion Nebula unguided

Recommended Posts

thats a very nice start, if you could get rid of some of the "halo" around the brighter stars it would be an excellent image. you have captured some very nice detail in and around the nebula, it might worth taking a short exposure for the core as well next time.

@Al, I use an Ioptron ZEQ25GT, I've spent some effort to tune it, and touching up the RA balance for the part of the sky I'm imaging helps a lot. Because my payload at 1 Kilo is way light, I made a CW out of my dumbbell set for it. This mount has spring loaded worm tension and I monitor the incoming subs and keep an eye on the adjustment. Admittedly the stars aren't perfect and very difficult when CW bar is close to vertical.
