Project Description

This image of the Orion Nebula was taken in November 2016 using a non goto HEQ5 mount with basic RA tracking.

The camera was a standard Nikon D7000 and I used a lens not a telescope. The Lens was a Nikon Nikkor 300mm F4.5 ED IF lens.

40 x 2 minute exposures, 5 Dark frames and 30 Bias Frames were used.

All the images were processed using Deep Sky Stacker and then edited in Photoshop to adjust the levels
