Hello,

Here is my rendition of M42 and surrounding area. AT65EDQ, QHY8, 19x600 sec subs.

Captured with Neb3, stacked in DSS, finished off in PS.

High Res - Astrobin

Comments welcome, thanks for looking.

Brian

Nice dust and faint details, but you might try blending in some shorter exposures to reduce the over-exposure of the trapezium region and your brighter stars. The high dynamic range of M42 is always a challenge! Nice job though with a OSC CCD.

Thanks guys, I will be shooting this region again. This is only the second time I've ever shot this area, the first was my first ever astrophoto. I have read a bunch online about blending in shorter subs, so next time I am going to give it a shot.
