Early look at the cool Orion Nebula, at early daybreak! Walking my dog, there

Was Orion well placed tho some earliest dawn. Raced my pouch back to my car.

Always have my 8 inch Dob handy in Trunk!

Beauty tho losing the dark view in twilight. After yesterday's rain, sky

Clear and low humidity change. Popped in a 10mm Baader for a decent attempt

At the famed Trapezium. E was well separated and F obvious. Very nice Sky!

Brightest core of Orion nearly stood out in twilight, still obvious in finder!

What an early Treat!

Clear Sky

A suggestion about keeping your telescope in the car trunk, put it in a strong case. I've read at least two posts in recent months about folks being hit by other cars. Not only was their car damaged, the telescopes they were carrying suffered the collision, too. One was a parked car that someone careened into as they were speeding through town.

 

Congrats on your observation. Great catch this early in the "Orion" season.

Tnx on suggestion.

Tnx also to those giving positive feedback.

Did a 2nd look this time early with some dark sky b4 5 AM.

Conditions lacked abit with fog in certain areas. But dark condition showed more on its details,

Even used a 32mm nearly filled the Field! But stars not as snug, Trapezium star E tho stood out.

Early risers chance to catch this one, always a favored!

XT8I Dob
Used 10mm and 32mm Baader
