From the other night, on the 14th, grabbed about 30 minutes of data on the Double Cluster before some ugly fog settled on my field.

Heya,

Feb 28th data finally processed due to work.

I had limited time so I had to choose a bright object. I've done M42 in the past, but never made an honest attempt at good data, so this is my first real attempt to get good data. I had to do two exposures sets, one for the core (10 seconds) and one for the nebula (180 seconds). I masked them together, then processed as normal for a nebula. While waiting for the moon to drop below the horizon and begin, I imaged the moon too, a mere 5% illuminated waxing crescent, a sliver. Both were acquired with an 80mm APO refractor.

Wonderful image of Orion Nebula! Thanks for sharing - seems your pier and setup are working very nicely for you!
