Oh no, not another M42!


Recommended Posts

Had a my first bash at this earlier yesterday evening as it passed between the gap between the ours and next door's houses.

I had some tracking issues last night, not sure what was going on so out of the 40 subs I took, I only managed to use 25. Even some of those were a little iffy.


25 x 1min (unguided)

20 x darks

20 x flats

And 10 x 10 seconds for the core

Really pleased with this, but my flats don't seem to be doing very much. Need to do some experimenting with different methods.

Yep!, you did a good job on this, it's a very attractive image of the Orion jewel. I don't know why some folk feel they need to apologise

for M42. It is after all, one of the best, if not the finest nebula in our home galaxy. I never tire of seeing it :(.
