My M42 Test Shot


Recommended Posts

I had a small window between finishing M33 and being way too tired to continue. I decided to point at M42.  I wanted to find out how much detail and how blown the core would be with 3 minute subs.  Because I'm shooting stuff for the first time I take a slightly experimental approach to what I'm shooting (by "experimental" I mean guesswork)

I got 29 usable subs and the core did not blow quite as much as I was expecting.  If I get another clear night this week (unlikely) I'll try for the core with some short exposures.  Failing that I have a starting point for mid/end of the month when it becomes viable all evening.
