Orion Nebula on finally a clear night

Postby dybaxter » Mon Feb 20, 2017 3:59 am

Hello All,
Been sometime since I have posted. I moved out to the country to get some dark skies. I am about 50 miles from the nearest big city. Can not see my hand in front of my face. Discovered that I really need a red torch, the white led just hurts my night vision.
Was able to get this image with my Nikon with a 400mm lens at 30 sec ISO 3200. It is one image of 20 that I took. I believe I may be surprised when I process them.

Had the camera on my CGEM mount.

I processed the 27 images and included some 15 sec exposures. The result was amazing. As I learn and hopefully get better with PixInsight I will reprocess. Here is the result.

I had no idea that this nebula was so beautiful until I saw it tonight for myself.
Thanks for taking a peek.

Dave
