Monochrome Widefield Orion

Recommended Posts

Now i dont know if i'd call this cheating - but i did a monochrome version of this because it just feels so much easier to bring out the little detail in this image without creating too much background noise in the colour version :icon_biggrin:. I think i like this more than the colour version

Looking at the framing and if not cropped i would guess at somewhere around 200mm. Nice image.

I think you're right symesie, my memory isn't great but i think it was somewhere around 200mm or 250mm.
