Hello all. This is my recent picture 'The Pearl of Winter Sky' - M42 Great Orion Nebula. I had a plan to take a 3 hours of light, but the heavy fog interrupted my sesion. So I took only 70 min.

Mount: Heq5
Telescope: Orion 80ED + FF/FR 0.8
Detector: Canon 350D mod
Guide: SW 80/400 + OSSAG
Exposure: 70 min: 14x5min + few 20s frames to center nebula (without dark and flat)

All opinions are welcome.

That looks fantastic.

Great processing with perfect contrast in the nebula.

Thank you so much friends. Is nice to hear that.

Beautiful; what ISO did you use?


I used 800ISO. All my astroimages I made on ISO 800.

Greetings.
