Orion and Running Man Nebulae

November 25, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

 

While visiting Sonoma’s Safari West, we took advantage of the relatively dark skies and clear air to test out the Canon 60Da astrophotography camera. This new offering from Canon was a treat, and delivered marvelous image files of the nearest and largest deep sky object – the the Orion Nebula (M42). This image is a composite of three frames that were aligned and combined in Nebulosity into a single FITS file.  In-camera long exposure noise reduction was utilized on each frame but no lights, darks or flats were shot separately.
