Hi Everyone, 

I thought it would be a neat idea for a little "participation project", if you'd like to attempt taking a photograph of the Great Nebula in Orion. Maybe it could be your very first image! It doesn't even need to be tracked, it can be done with a tripod and camera.

A lot of people pick this object, M42, because it's a nice large target, and relatively easy to find. I think I can speak for all of us here: We would LOVE to see your first image!

Not my first image but I like it.  It was taken with a 66 mm Astrotech refractor.  300 1 minute subs with a Canon modified XT camera.

Also the powerhouse lighting up the Orion Nebula, the Trapezium photographed 3-22-21 using a 6 inch F15 Maksutov Cassegrain.  30 5 second exposures at ISO 200 usinn an un-modified Canon XT SLR

Thank you Joe! AMAZING images 🤩 These are relatively small telescopes, correct? Would you recommend for beginner imagers?
