M42 in B&W


Post by Ben Cartwright SASS »

I spent some time imaging M42 to get enough good exposures to create a good B&W image. This is 13 - 50 second exposures for a total of 11 minutes. I used the Slooh 17" Planewave with the FLI 16803 camera at the Chile Observatory. Processed in Pixinsight and finished in Lightroom and Photoshop.
