ORION NEBULAE, astrophoto.
I like very-very the astronomical photography allso, but I know, this is not so popular in Photography.
Also known Messier 42, or M42. NGC 1976
The Orion Nebula is a diffuse nebula situated south of Orion's Belt. It is one of the brightest nebulae, and is visible to the naked eye in the night sky. M42 is located at a distance of 1,344 ± 20 light years and is the closest region of massive star formation to Earth. The M42 nebula is estimated to be 24 light years across. Older texts frequently referred to the Orion Nebula as the Great Nebula in Orion or the Great Orion Nebula. The Orion Nebula is one of the most scrutinized and photographed objects in the night sky, and is among the most intensely studied celestial features. The nebula has revealed much about the process of how stars and planetary systems are formed from collapsing clouds of gas and dust.
You see totally 260 min expo on the Nebulae (more as 4 Hours!). This image is flatten from 57 images with Registar and Iris software. The most expos are 5 minute long, some expos have 3min, 2 min, 1min, 30sec, 15sec.
127/950 TRIPLET APO mounted on Sky-watcher EQ6 Heavy-Duty Equatorial Mount. On this Apochromatic teleskope is mounted the CANON EOS 30D. Paralell with this mounted the Guider telescope 80/600 ED APO, which has without ocular a Guider webcam. Guiding in Astro-Photography is a must, the Sky moves You must follow one Point. So it is precise the guiding along the expos with the Skywatcher EQ6 Mount.
LITTLE BIT INFO FOR THINKING OVER:
M42 is located at a distance of 1,344 ± 20 light years, what means, that the light what we photographed, is started 1344 Years befor, from this Object. In this time was the Roman empire the greatest in Europe, and all the Gladiators were in Rome in outrageous form!
So we can say, all astrophoto is one time travelling…
Credits goes allso to my Friend: Hozé
who teached me the many thing in Astro-photography, from his 20 Years astronomical Know-How. Without him is this "Shot" not here... We have worked 3 Years on this object, many nights in cold winter. Naturally man shold be to have a clear sky, no clouds and no Moon phase...
Sorry for my English...
