Surely 400hrs deserves the top spot !

Come on like it if you like it!  :cool:

Thanks for the thought but it's not a competition, especially since Jonas and I are friends and I host some of his kit here. The Andromeda mosaic was, quite rightly, the subject of huge appreciation - and it was a one man show. Ours is a double act!

ORION. This is a marathon O'Donoghue-Penrice production owing more to Tom than to me. Tom began the luminance and Ha in Spain four years ago using one Tak 106N/Atik 11000. We then set up the dual Tak

I m happy to say that the 400hr Orion image is now available to view at 40% full size through Zoomify on my website. Click on the Full Screen button then zoom and pan away. https://www.astrophoto

Thanks Olly, and everyone for their comments. I'm delighted with the result, so I'm glad you're enjoying it. This almost got out of hand, as despite the 11000 chip size, at 530mm, we thought we would

Appreciate the sentiment, it was done in jest, to draw attention to the level of effort involved in both pieces.

Both are fantastic contributions to amateur astronomy.

Following on from my original post (#49) I have now had an opportunity to view the image using more than a GPRS signal on my iPhone ( :eek:) and my original suspicions have been confirmed - absolutely outstanding Tom and Olly, without doubt the most exciting image I have ever seen taken from a terrestrial location using 'amateur' equipment. I grazed my chin on the jaw-drop .....

Do you know the horizontal and vertical subtended angles of you epic image Olly?  If I get my widefield rig working in time I would like to cover a similar field of view including Barnard's Loop (think it's called).  Very low res compared with yours, of course :D

I haven't looked at this at all carefully, GIna, but it looks like about 12 degrees by 22, which is a very rough guesstimate. The large loop on the left is indeed called Barnard's Loop or SH2-276. The Loop may have been created by successive supernovae centred around M42. Thought provoking stuff...
