The Orion constellation taken 14.01.16 using Canon 100D on Skywatcher Star Adventurer. A reworking of my original image using Gimp. Bringing out the detail and colours of the nebula has unfortunately also brightened the LP to the lower half of the image. You can clearly see M42 The Orion Nebula within "the sword", and there is The Flame Nebula and The Horsehead Nebula around the bottom left star of "the belt". You can also see an element of Barnard's Loop which is the red band that curves around the left hand side of the image.
As it's a very clear night, I thought I would do a very quick test.
Lens: Hoya 200mm 1:3.5
I took a single shot, hand held camera for 4". Wanted to know if I could capture a faint glimpse of M42 and I got it.
Really can't wait now until I use my proper imaging rig. I still have to learn a lot about imaging, but I'll get there slowly
