First M42


Recommended Posts

OK here is my first deep sky post, it's my first Orion and the third picture I've taken. 21 x 3 mins and 10 darks unguided, Canon 300D modded through my ZS66. First time out with this camera. Fiddled with in PS, but not too sure what I'm doing. I'm very happy for a beginner and hope to improve so any hint'/tips welcome. I'm sure I can get it better.

I would layer them in using photoshop.

This is a very nice image for a first go at the Orion nebula, keep at it.


Ok that's something else I need to find out how todo, I'm not very good with photoshop, still all part of the fun.:)

Hi Stardust,

Great first go! as said, loads of detail!

Colour looks a wee bit off to me? Many different ways to cure this, such as 'colour balance' 'curves' Hue/saturation etc etc. Just play about with it.

If you like we could have a go at processing it a bit for you if that helps? You would just need to put up an unprocessed version :)

Thanks for sharing,
