An attempt at Orion
« on: February 14, 2016, 03:52:41 PM »
So when I was taking some pictures of the 37 Cluster I decided to just take a set of Orion pictures.


I ended up with 16 x 90 subs that I could use and this is my result.

Very nice.  The high contrast between the ultra bright core and the dark wispy stuff is hard to manage but you've done a great job there.
