while watching the Geminids meteor shower tonight, i grabbed a few shots of everyones fav, M42.

not the best of focus but happy with the results.

10x240sec@iso1600. prime focus.

coma corrector and LP filter.

no darks or lights.

camera is still in the scope ready for more data and a batch of core shots.


EDIT.... pic 2 re-worked this with a high pass and some adjustments to the levels also added so core data and got rid of those two "spots" at the top

looks better to me.  


which do you prefer?
