Description

18. Sep-2017, my first M42 for this astro-season.
After a long night exposing other Deep sky tagets I ended this astro-session taking frames of the impressive M42. It was very early in the morning and the object was standing low in the horizon.
Total LUM subs/exposure only: 6x60sec+9x30sec+20x10sec.
No calibration frames were used.
On request I will be happy to share/show tif/fit files/stack info, please just let me know, thanks.
Kind regards Niels
