First attempt M42
« on: 13:03:33, 09 January, 2012 »
Hi All,

Please find attached a low res copy of the M42 I have taken and processed. The location is Eccles, next to the motorway, under the gibbous moon of 05/01/2012, 20x60sec exposures at ISO800. Comments and advice from anyone will are welcome.

Clear Skies,

Thats really good given your location. Using Flats would take away some of the uneven field illumination.

Hi Chris,

Thank you for the tip. :) I am a little lazy in terms of taking flats. :P But I guess no way out.
