M42, The Orion Nebula. I only became interested in astrophotography 5 months ago and it’s been a steep learning curve. I’ve been waiting for the chance to capture the Orion nebula ever since. This was the result of 31 x 180 second subs with accompanying calibration frames, and I was so very pleased with the outcome given my relative lack of experience.
