I have had my Star Adventurer for some time, but I haven't used it much for deep sky photography. Now, I'm for the time being away from my German equatorial mount, and I'm working to get more familiar with using the Star Adventurer with a little bit longer focal lengths and trying to learn to align it better to do longer integrations. I'm pleased with this image. Of course M42 always looks great and is easy to find without the goto abilities I have with my GEM. Clear skies!
