Hi!

After a lot of rain I finally had a chance to image another low altitude PN: NGC 2438 in M46. Seeing was not perfect, decent at best, so I was not able to work with 4700 mm focal length. :(

While waiting for NGC 2438 to rise over the trees next to my observing site, I had a nice view on M43...

Given your conditions these two images came out really nice. What FL were these imaged?

Hi!

Thanks for your comment!

The focal length was 2350 mm. Actually, I wanted to use a teleconverter to reach a FL of 4700 mm, but the seeing at this low altitude was just too bad.

Wow, thanks!
