Orion Nebula


Steve Riggs

Christchurch, Dorset

Cannon EOS 450d and sigma 300mm f2.8 @ f5.6. Piggybacked on a celestron 8inch newtonian on a NEQ6 pro synsan mount. (unguided).
A number of images were taken using ‘Backyard EOS’ ranging from 30 seconds to 60 seconds and then stacked using DSS.

The orion nebula taken during December 2011. This was imaged before I had set up a guiding system, so I hope that my next attempt will be better.
