Description

Jan 5th, 2016 - I found a new dark park close by (Lake Hudson State Park) that I was excited to give it a try and capture the Orion Nebula with my Hyperstar setup and Canon SL1, I knew that M42 core is super bright especially for Hyperstar's F/2.0 so I captured 20 Subs with different exposures (2, 5, 10, 15, 30, 60 and 120 seconds) and then merged and HDR all frames in Photoshop using masking technique, it was a long process but the results were very rewarding.
