Tried some pictures of the Orion Nebula tonight, not my usual type of thing so no real software foe editing the results or any idea how to! First up is a widefiled using my sons Canon 1100D. Piggybacked it on my Skywatcher EQ2 mount, no darks or flats, just a lot of 10 second exposures which were then stacked in DSS. Played around with the sliders a bit until I got something I was happy enough with.

Next I hooked up my GPCam to a Skywatcher Mercury 705 on the EQ2 mount. Lots of 8 second exposures, again stacked in DSS and played with the sliders.

Have to say, for the equipment used I am more than happy with the results, although focus could have been a bit better.
