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.

Very best,

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