After many weeks of poor weather and just not having the time to get out, I have finally got in a couple of quick objects this last Saturday. Dew was very heavy by 10:00 pm and temps had dropped to about 33F. I went for the quick and easy stuff so here is yet another Orion Nebula and Flame.
Both were captured with a Samsung SCB-2000 through an Orion ST-80. The Flame was at sense up 512 and Orion at sense up 256. Capture software was DeepSky Imaging.
