Description

Despite the dew & heavy humidity during the night, the telescope dew cap & heaters did a great job.

It was also a very cold & freezing night :-)

The M42 center color picture consist of, what I call, an "artificial" Luminance master part, this one,

M42 ArtificialLumMaster

And a Master SII, Ha, OIII Color part, this one,

M42 HubblePaletteMaster

Exposure details in writing was/are:

Lum: 100x1sec. SII: 55x10sec+19x30sec. Ha: 60x10sec+14x30sec. OIII: 100x5sec+19x30sec.

More details about the raw matrial can be shown upon request/if needed, thanks a lot.

One of the SII stacks is shown/available here,

SII stack-55-10sec

My home build observatory is placed in my front yard/in the "red light" polution zone, have a look here,
