M42 – Orion Nebula: - Data by Jerry Lodriguss

Data by Jerry Lodriguss from this website:

These are Canon RAW files shot with an unmodified Canon 700D (T5i) on an AT65Q at f/6.5 with a 420 mm focal length and an ISO 800. I used Deep Sky Stacker, Star Tools, and Canon Digital Photo Professional for post processing.

This is one of my better M42; I need to trash the others. Good data and lots of practice make better images. Thanks to Jerry Lodriguss for providing RAW data to play with.
