M42 Orion nebula

By boabsta
Very hard to get as much info without totaly blowing the core. I realy need to learn how to do layers.
60, 30sec exposures stacked with 10, 30sec darks and curves in ps5. This will improve when I learn how to do layers and better proccessing.

Very nice work here boabsta, I take it this was done using a static tripod as opposed to some kind of autoguiding ?
Great image

Thanks for comments Smile
Chedd I used a Skywatcher HEQ5pro. It was tracking but not guided. I am only starting down the autoguided route and having more than a few problems but soon hopefully shall be getting some 5min exposures.

lol....join the club Wink
The HEQ5 pro is a good mount, are you trying to guide with PHP?

If you mean PHD then yeah, if not then I am trying PHD lol
Have had it guiding once successfuly out of 3 attempts. Got the QHY5v which I have on a modded 9X50 finder.
A lot to learn but I'm getting there. I see youve had some success in this area Smile

Have to add that I like the other other images you got. A lot. I hope you dont mind but I have connected you (that just sounds wrong) as I think we have similar tastes in photography. Me being a novice and you obviousley a master. The Alice pic is superb.
