Lovely image Haseeb.

Copernicus and Kepler are putting on a grand show.

Thanks for posting.

Regards. Peter.

Very nice image Haseeb. The Appenines stand out in very clear detail. I like the last one best as that is where the greatest detail can be seen.

Good work!

Art, yes all details are in here: http://alexpostastro.blogspot.com/2012/12/making-of-orion-nebula-m42-photo-wi...

Just to make sure: this is a two year old work. Some features have changed, especially with software. For example FITS liberator is no longer a plugin for photoshop. It is now a standalone tool, which is an excellent news since I no longer need to upgrade my photoshop copy.

Haseeb, the stitched version looks great. Don't you love puting it together? I remember hours spent on doing that. Great times! I am dreaming of doing it again some time again. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Haseeb,

Could you let me into the secret ? What "Stitch" software are you using ?

Many thanks and regards,
Tel

Thank you guys.

Tel, earlier I use to use the software that came along with Canon. After researching on google, came across a recommendation for installing Microsoft ICE which is freeware. I did that and never looked back. Works great and stitches automatically.

Now you've made me lose a stitch. I'll never finish it at this rate.

Hi Haseeb,

Many thanks for the information regarding Microsoft "ICE".

I'll definitely investigate its potential but judging from that which you've achieved through its use, it certainly looks like a useful piece of software !

Best regards,
Tel

And I can clearly identify those of us who frequently take that right turn on Art's map. I'm sure the mods have our names on a list or in their heads. I KNOW Rickster did!

Hi again people. Had a chance to use my Nexstar 8Se again a couple of nights ago.The night was very cold -20 degrees C .However using the camera's cross box image of the stars I did an auto 2 star align using my video camera display and stayed in my warm house collecting images.Images was taken on a stock 8 se Alt/Azm on its tripod with no guiding.
Images are 14 second exposures and they are about 100 stacked.
Below is NGC 2024
