Description

On 12/04/2/15, made my first astrophoto's with my EQ6 in combination with a Smidth-Newtonion 10" LXD55 telescope. Used a Canon 450D, unguided exposures of 60 seconds each. This is my very first result from M42. It is stacked and finetuned. It's not perfect, but I'm proud at my first attempt for this nebula
