That's a good first shot of M42 - miles better than my first attempt !

Keep up the good work.

Try practicing your processing skills. You have a lot of detail in your image and it's well focused.

Processing will bring out the detail - as Arthur has done.

Sorry Steve, I didn't notice your response. Nice adjustments too. :lol:

Last night I try for third time. Second time I better forget. :) I manage to stack together 10 images ISO 800 1 minute long. I also try longer expositon but my tracking is not good enough. 5 minutes at 800 ISO show great details but tracking...

OK you lot! I strongly suspect that you are trying to maintain the black point of your "reworks" and so losing some of the finer bits of the image. Don't be afraid to have a background that is not perfectly black - in life it never is and a too dark black will make the image seem contrived imo.

How's this?
