M42 The Orion Nebula – Terry Webb

After eventually setting up the societies 5in Meade APO refractor to try a couple of images – here is an image of Messier 42 – The Orion Nebula. The image is a composite of two stacks of exposures, at 600s and 30s – although I think I need to attend the Astroimaging Lecture later this year to learn how to blend two images together! 🙂
