Astro 2018 - IMG_7809
Everyone's favourite this time of year, despite trying to resist the temptation I have to return to Orion.
With grand ideas of a large multi-panel, HDR with Ha and RGB filters, my ambition was reduced somewhat by the reality of some bad frames, the annoying realisation that air traffic control was routing all planes from "up north" right over where I was imaging, and the RGB exposures differing extensively between panels. In the end this is cropped by 50%, and consists of only my 5 minutes RGB filter and 10 minute Ha filter exposures in one panel. Details are below.
Hopefully, with some further post-processing I'll be able to re-introduce all the other data captured for Orion on this night...still, its pretty to look at.
