M42 & NGC 1977 Hyperstar new
      #5593474 - 12/28/12 10:42 PM

This was done in an orange zone with Orion submerged in the city sky dome so the LP prevented me from getting the outer dust areas I wanted. Still I was happy to get as much of the reflection nebulosity here after extensive processing.

CPC Deluxe HD 1100
Canon T3i Baader mod + Astronomik CLS-CCD filter
72 subs @ 30 seconds ISO 1600 f/2 Hyperstar III shot over two nights
20 subs @ 30 seconds ISO 1600 f/10 for trapezium core
Processed in Nebulosity & Photoshop

Great!!

Good job layering in the core.

The CLS filter really allowed you to capture some nice detail.

Simply Awesome! You must have spent a lot of time processing that one. Your efforts resulted in a stunning image!


Happy New Year,
Ed

Wonderful image, Joe!
Congrats!!

I am actually looking at buying this EXACT same setup since I want a better visual setup and do not want to mess with a huge and expensive GEM when a wedge mounted CPC/LX200 will do the wide field imaging that I only have the time for anymore....
So I may be a emailing you someday to pick your brain on your gear/setup
Again, wonderful shot!!

Thanks everyone. Brent as you can see your mod work is paying off very well for me the T3i is awesome! So I'll be glad you assist you anyway I can. The re-alignment you did on the CMOS sensor is holding and I got the corrector aligned perfectly so I don't even have to collimate the Hyperstar. I even have my work on display in a gallery here right now and the local observatory where I do some of my imaging is selling my prints in their gift shop.
