M42 The Great Nebula In Orion (LRGB)
My first shoot of M42 for the season and a first using the narrower field of the QHY9 on the TMB 130, got clouded out again so this is another work in progress :)
I would like to add some longer exposure subs if the weather cooperates.
Total Exposure time just over 3.5 hours
Location: DownUnder Observatory, Fremont MI
Date of Shoot 20th and 21st January 2012
