Quick M42 from 9th Dec


Recommended Posts

A quick shot at M42 from 9th December. Only just got around to processing.

30 mins in 2min subs using guided Equinox ED80 and unmodded 1000D at ISO 800. Darks but no flats. Autoguiding was not behaving itself very well so shorter subs than I would have liked.

Problems with field curvature which will hopefully be helped by new field flattener. Also the focus was out - I am having some problems with slipping focuser with the Canon mounted. Need to make some adjustments. However, I am not yet so rich in subs that I am prepared to throw any away :(.

Pleased to see so much detail in the nebula, and a glimpse of the running man (correct?).

The colours look right to me, but any comments on colour (or anything else) gratefull received.
