Description

Here is this year's M45. I took this with an Orion ED80 F/7.5 reduced with a .8X Orion reducer. This was mounted on an AVX mount, guided with an Orion SSAG. A Baader modified Canon T3 camera and no other filters were used. This is about 1.5 hours of integration time, 120 second subs @ ISO 800.
