I thought that i would upload something different today. Another from my archives taken back in Oct 2008. I am relatively new to daytime photography, my 1st journey using a DSLR was Astrophotography. I have a modified Canon 350D. Which has had its colour filters taken out so it takes images in infra red.
To the image -
The Orion Nebula - Orion is one of the most well known and noticeable constellations in the Winters night sky, especially Orions belt and Sword. Half way down the sword, within the 2nd pair of noticeable stars is the Orion Nebula. Its a region where new stars are born, the closest star forming region to Earth, saying that its still 1,344 ± 20 Light years away from earth. 1 Light year is the equivalent of 5,878,625,373,183.608 Miles.
This image was made up of approximately 25 x 30 second images stacked with dark frames (Dark frames used to take out dark signal caused when imaging using DSLRs or CCD cameras) and then processed in PS E6.
Equipment - Modified Canon 350D mounted onto a Skywatcher 250px 10" scope on an EQ5 Mount.
Thanks for looking.
