Another Orion Nebula

Recommended Posts

Well, went out last night with all intensions of having a go at something else. The cloud had rolled in earlier and then cleared again at midnight. As I set up I could see that more thin cloud was on the way so swung round to orion as being a novice I knew that by the time I found something else the cloud would have covered it anyway:(

Tracking seemed to be better but still struggle with post processing. Stacked in DSS, Mainly curves and levels in photoshop.

A nice result, the Trapezium area is nicely defined and nice detail in the nebulosity. A good result for an unmodded camera and unguided.
