Results of processing my image of M42 from 4/1/2020 (Lichfield, UK)

Processed version of my B&W photo M42 Orion Nebula from 4/1/2020 – lights and darks – I didn’t have any flats to hand.

This image has been taken with ca. 30 light frames only 5 secs long, showing how much more sensitive the Altair 183M mono camera is than my QHY10 one shot colour camera!

  • Altair 183M mono camera.
  • Sky Watcher Equinox Pro 80mm OTA.
  • EQ6 mount.
  • Astro Photography Tools (APT) software to take photos, Nebulosity 4 software to stack photos and some early processing, GIMP to do further processing.
