My M42 final?? for 2013 HARGB
      #5620610 - 01/13/13 11:48 AM

Never say final, right!?!? Grabbed some RGB in between clouds, rain, etc to add to my HA that I had posted earlier. It has gone through a number of iterations but I'm pretty happy at this point. Not that I might not revisit it again!

I'd be happy too with this. There are so many version you can have of M42! Post 'em if you got 'em!

Beautiful work Warren! Is M42 ever really done? I spent hours and hours on it a couple years ago, and I'd like to do it again, next season...

I really love it when you can see the faint dust around this area as well as the trapezium at the same time. Fantastically done!

Regards,
David

That's well done, Warren, with a judicious, natural processing.
My regards,

Thanks Mike! There are so many ways to process this object I decided on a minimalist approach this time.

Looking nice - I want to do a good one of M42 too.
Would 5 hours of data be enough?

Thanks! It will depend upon your skies, if you have dark skies 5 hours would work well. If you are doing mono then put most of the time into Luminance (HA in my case) so you get the details you want. Half of my total time was done focusing on the HA which I used as the Luminance channel.

Thanks Tom, Bill and JP!

JP, have you done one of your 3D images of M42?

Nice! I really like how you maintained the core and still went deep with it.
