Orion, a running man and moonlight...


Recommended Posts

Why do the very rare clear-ish nights always coincide with almost full moons??!


Seeing the stars seems so rare at the moment I'm conditioned now to getting the scope out...even if the moon is wafting its way across the sky. So here's the Orion Nebula taken last night under a moon just past full. Think there's about 1.25 hours of 120sec shots.


I'm not a great fan of M42's that have been over-HDR'ed just to show the Trapezium, so my processing is quite conservative. I prefer showing the amazing brightness at the heart of the nebula.


Here's to the next clear sky...probably about March 2022!
