Orion nebula (M42) 10/05/08

    Newer Older

    My first try at shooting the orion nebula. This was imaged on October 5, 2008 with a Canon 300D attached to a Celesron C6-N at prime focus. Telescope was guided using a Meade 70AZ-Z and SPC900NC webcam using PHD Guiding.

    14 x 120s subframes ISO800
    10 x 30s subframes ISO800
    Subframes were stacked using Iris. Final processing was done in PS CS3.

      Great shot! Do you add the cross-hatch patterns in PS, or is that a result of the scope?

      Sorry that I haven't replied, but I think those two images are awesome :)

      The orion nebula is starting to come back around again for this year. I now have a Modded camera and I should be able to get a way better image of the nebula this year
