M42 Great Orion Nebula new
      #5531563 - 11/21/12 06:17 AM Attachment (24 downloads)

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.

FULL RESOLUTION

That looks fantastic.

Great processing with perfect contrast in the nebula.

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

Greetings.
