Wide-Field Image of Orion


Wide-field image of constellation Orion

This nice wide-field picture (click thumbnail image for a larger version) was taken last night at the Observatory by CADSAS member Graham.

He writes:
“One picture for the gallery. I’ve touched it up a bit but this isn’t a stacked output, just a single photo.┬áIf you look closely you can just about make out the Orion Nebula.

For those budding astrophotographers the settings for the shot were:
Exposure: 20secs
Aperture: 3.5
ISO: 1600
Focal length: 18mm

Thank you!
