Second outing with the 269c pro TEC - The Orion Nebula


Recommended Posts

I had the chance for another go with the 269c. It was a bitterly cold evening in January, which threw up lots of gremlins, so I only managed a couple of hours on this, but pleased nonetheless. There was a first quarter moon nearby too. I cooled to -5 degrees, set exposure at 180s and got on my way. I have started to pull some of the finer dust so, with more exposure, I think this has great potential.
