Orion Nebula M42

Recommended Posts

From my new home I have an uninterrupted view of Orion as it arcs across the sky...previously it would appear above my garage and then slowly sink beneath the trees! Despite the better view, I now have more light pollution!


Anyway, a couple of nights ago I gathered about 3 hours of data on M42. As I've previously said I'm not a great fan of 'excessive' HDR processing to show the core stars and prefer showing the blinding brightness at the nebula's centre as it is. Other than that I did a fairly subtle processing and managed to bring out some of the more elusive dust at the nebula's edge.
