Another M42


Recommended Posts

When I got home last night I noticed Orion creeping up the crisp, clear night sky. With weather the its been over the last few weeks I couldnt let this chance go even if the moon was still very bright.

Details are:

1000D Modified, IKI 70mm APO, CG4 (unguided)

22 x 90secs subs


10 x Darks

No Flats.

I am quite happy with the result for such a short exposure, it does have some bad gradient, my trail has run out on pixinsight (must resist purchasing, for now anyway) if anyone would like to run some pixinsight magic on it that would be great. (I can email a higher res image :)

So I decided to hell with it and I bought Pixinsight. First results are in. Here is the new version of the above image.

I think its a much flatter image, less noise and a little more detail.
