This is my first attempt at imaging the Orion Nebula. This images consists of 72 stacked frames. It took 2 hours of imaging to achieve this. The exposure time was too long... as seen by the blown-out center of the Nebula. Focus was also a slight problem in the optical train. Practice, practice, practice and more......

 

System: 80 mm Triplet ED APO Refractor Telescope. Camera: Nikon D800e controlled via laptop computer running BackyardNikon.

Thanks for stopping by and your comments. 

 

The outer segment of the frame is not as sharp as the mid and center. I have been told by a master that I is probably the focal length error do to improper coupling to the DSLR. 

 

I have quite a long way up this steep learning curve called Astrophotography No wonder it is a Science of its own.
