Description

I know yet another Great Orion Nebula Image M42 M43.

I was fooling around with HDR functionality in PI combining some old and recent data. This combines (2) sets of exposures one short and another 12X longer. One set is (60) seconds and the other is (720) seconds.

All data was taken using the home design and constructed 8" F/2.6 astrograph, a STL 11000m and a 12nm Halpha filter.
