The nebula Messier 78 (also known as M 78 or NGC 2068) is a reflection nebula in the constellation Orion and is 1,600 light years distant from Earth. This was a much too dim object for me to image from my backyard with 4 minute subs. I need at least 10 minute ones for more detail in the clouds of the nebula.

That is a tough target. You still got some decent detail in the main dark dust loop and I like the framing as well.

I want to try M78, but if 4 min subs won't do I can forget about trying from home. You may ease off on the noise reduction a bit to give more detail.
