Orion reworked


Recommended Posts

Winter is on it's way shortly and I can't wait to get a hold of this again. Core has blown but I knew that was going to happen. I was after dust that night in February, and I certainly wasn't disappointed! Very sensitive camera. I'm going to (hopefully) grab lots of short subs for the core and I'd like a little more dust. I'll see if I can make this a little project, but I'm thinking we may not get enough clear nights to just work on one! Anyway, this is 2 hours and 51 minutes(180s subs), no filters, in Bortle 5 skies. Stacked in APP and processed in Photoshop



SW72ED, HEQ5 PRO. Lightwave 0.8 reducer/ flattener, Hypercam 269c pro TEC. (SharpCap)

Starwave 50mm and GPCAM2 290C for guiding (PHD2)

Does winter start so early in the UK now? 😀 It's a great target and not as easy as people think to get a good image, your image looks excellent.

Thank you very much! Astro darkness has returned now so it won't be long
