Orion Neb closeup in HA

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

OK. Not another Orion Nebula.

I've not done any DSO imaging for a long while.

Looking at my files, the last time I attempted imaging M42 was way back in 2009! This is the result of just 50 minutes of 2 minutes exposures each of HA and Oiii. Perhaps I'm just lazy, but it's so easy to overexpose this one, and I quite like the understated effect. I particularly like the fact that you can see the blue stars of the Trapezium so well, and other subtle details in the core that often got lost with longer exposures.

Omegon RC8, Atik 383L+ mono, HA and Oiii filters. Synthetic green channel.
