Orion Nebula & Plaeides Widefield under a moonwashed sky


Recommended Posts

Hi All!!!!!

It has been a pretty poor night again imaging wise......Very damp again, windy, very high thin cloud and a bright moon just for good measure, 7 hours of imaging, ending up with virtually nothing.......Any sane person might of given up a lot sooner......

These 2 images are the best of a bad bunch really........

M42 - 5 x 180sec subs @ ISO 800 - No Darks

M45 - 3 x 180sec & 2 x 90 sec subs @ ISO 800 w/darks

Im not too disappointed the way these turned out, i didnt really expect too much under a bright night sky......

Anyways, time i wasnt here......

I usually do when im doing prime focus photography Billy......I had tried several other targets last night, a few clusters, they are so tiny when imaging them through the lense, same with the dumbbell......Its a matter of finding the right objects......I`ll get there one day......
