My attempts at astro imaging

This years Orion – Nothing amazing though!


As I have said before, each year you need to go image the Orion Nebula, it’s such an amazing object and always makes a nice image.

This year I left it a bit late and as a result Orion was really low in the sky, thats why you can see the reflection of some lights in the bottom corner.  It was taken this time with my wiefield setup – the William Optics ZS70, last year was a lot closer in with the big newt.  Also due to the clouds rolling in this was cut short and is really only 4 X 20min exposures, with a load of shorter ones for the core (Orion is so bright you need to take 2 sets of images so as not to overexpose the core).
