M42 - first attempt at a 'serious' shot

Recommended Posts

A surprise clear night on Sunday, so I strapped my old Sony mirrorless onto the back of a Bresser 102s/600, prime focus and a 2xbarlow and fumbled about trying to find a focus (fortunately the half moon helped here)

Single 30s exposure, ISO 3200, no filters.
Just cropped it a bit. and boosted the contrast to remove some sky-glow from my 'orange sky' site in Surrey using the standard Windows picture editor on the JPEG file.

Well pleased with this.

Welcome to your first step into astrophotography. Really good first image as well.
