Orion 40 min window

Quick shot of Orion (40 mins)

Short exposure of the Orion and Running Man nebula

The weather has been pretty bad for Astrophotography. We get a sunny day, then at dusk the clouds roll in.

This is a quick shot of the Orion Nebula (M42) and its partner on the left the Running Man (NGC 1977). 

I managed to get 40 minutes in between some clouds.  There is not really enough data collected but this is all I could gather on the night and its has not been clear since. As such it is pretty heavily processed to teas out the details.

This QHY268 Colour camera impresses me. It can capture so much detail in relatively short exposures.
