I was unhappy with my previous post of the Orion Nebula. It consisted of 6 images stacked in Deep Sky Stacker, but seemed to have lost some of the more faint nebula detail in the stacking/editing process.

I decided to use just 2 exposures, 1 x 4 minute exposure and 1 x 10 second exposure, and then combined them in Photoshop and made some final adjustments.

Thanks for looking Smile

Great shot to say you only used those two exposures. What scope was used and what are the light pollution issues like where u took this shot from? Cheers. Neil.

This was shot in Devon whilst on an astro holiday, under some of the darkest skies in the country. I used a 7" Maksutov Newtonian Telescope(at prime focus) on an EQ6 pro tracking mount(unguided).

I've updated my original stacked version and it is also here in my PF if you want to see the final result.

Thanks for your interest.

Yes ive used the same scope at Astro Adventures. Tony used to be a member in our society and we go down every year. Great setup hes got but we have only had 3 full clear nights in 3 years. Pitty about the weather. We just got back from kelling heath sky camp and im just stacking some of my shots from there.
All the best.
Neil.
