Default My first attempt on M42

Here it is, any comments and suggestions are welcome!
Taken on Nov 10, about 02:00 UT (brrrr... about -4 Celsius, windy).
Observing site: Cakovec, Croatia.
GSO Newton 8" F/5 on EQ6 Pro Synscan mount.
Sidereal tracking, no guiding.
Baader comacorrector, EOS 350D (unmodded).
20 subs of different exposures, total: 488 seconds.
Stacked in DSS 3.0.2, processed in PS 7, noise filtering in Neat Image (demo
:-(
There is much more detail in original stack (before it went to processing
and noise filtering). :-(
I have to make it better (the center is burnt). Getting to work right now!
Greetings to all!
Gordan

Very nice...for the centre it is only a way to elaborate imagesm but it
depends also on the kind of exposures that you did.
it promises very well!!


Thank you for the comment and encouragement! :-)
Greetings,

Gordan, very good result considering the short exposure time.

Thank you, Stefan & Fabio! I hope to make longer exposures soon (when I
finish my guiding scope).
