A good 3 hrs on M42-M43 and the Running Man

Recommended Posts

Combined two evenings' worth of data into a single image. Had to crop a bit due to rotation of the images with respect to each other. All data collected with my APM 80mm F/6 triplet, Tele-Vue TRF2008 0.8x reducer, Canon EOS 550 D (modded), ST80 guide scope with ASI178MM as autoguider, all on top of my humble EQ3-2 mount. A total of 10920s or 3h 2 mins exposure. Almost all processing in APP, with cropping and a few final tweaks with curves in GIMP.

Will try to get more data if the weather clears, just to see if I can get more of the dust and gas in the background. Quite addictive, this DSO imaging stuff.

Very nice 'rose' version.  The eye is drawn to the perfectly positioned 'running man' too.  Very easy on the eye Michael.
