2 M42's a year apart

Recommended Posts

Hmm. 2 versions of M42 a year apart. The first one was pretty much my first marginally passable attempt and the second was taken a few nights ago.

Other differences - The second image was semi-automated in APT (EQDir controlling the mount, plate solving to find the target, automated imaging sequence etc) and it was processed initially in PixInsight.

Not sure it is much progress but then I haven't really had much chance to image this year so I'll take it. Bit more detail in the nebulosity etc but not overly happy.

Ah well, when I get my filter wheel back from the menders hopefully we'll get some clear nights and I can continue the journey...

There is so much difference in both of these. You've come on. In leaps and bounds.

Thank you :)

I will keep at it and try some narrowband work when I get my filter wheel back. Just gotta keep at it...

That looks like excellent progress Danny, much better control in the core and so much more fine detail in the Nebula.

Btw I've changed your text colour so it is easier to read.
