Orion Nebula – 1, 2, 3!
Orion Nebula is the best celestial object to practice deep-sky imaging by beginners like me. 🙂 So far, I am doing quite well – I hope, haha! It is through practice that I’ve learned the importance of calibrating (e.g. polar and drift alignment) my mount to avoid noise (such as star trails) in long-exposure images and to save money (autoguiders are too expensive!).
Below are my three images of the Orion Nebula:
As you can see, there is a sign of improvement but I’m still getting there. I need ample time to practice!
Here’s another image where I changed the perspective and slightly enhanced the color of the Orion Nebula:
Aside from time, I also need clear skies and good weather to practice! I hope this year will be a lot better for observation compared last year.
To the stars! 🙂
