M42 and 45 from Friday


Recommended Posts


here is my go at m42 and 45 from Friday. Both sets of around 20 30 second subs shot with a 400d.

Not a patch on the many great images here but I was pleased to get some nebulosity on the renning man and around M45. These are shot in altaz and under heavy north east London light polutin so I have to keep the exposures short.

I thinks that I can manage 45 seconds as long as I do not shoot above 60 degrees and will definitely have a go with that. I am shooting at iso 800 and with a relatively weak 2" skywatcher LP filter.

Would it be worth trying to have a go at iso 1600 or without the filter?

thanks again
