M42
Posted by Mares on Monday, December 02, 2013 11:57 AM

Last week it was quite good conditions to capture M42. I was using my Celestron 150 mm refractor and Olympus E-510 DSLR. Lights: 8 x 20'' and 20 x 60'' (ex. guiding). I was also taking darks, but the dark-files didnt match with the lights exposuretime. Exposuretime DSS = 22' 40''.

Thank you Tim, but this image can be done much better with guiding and darks. This is my next project with M42. I hope my Celestron autoguider will cooperate.
