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?

Here is a second one, taken 10 days later on March 19. Different camera. Canon 5dMkIV, EdgeHD8, single 50 sec. exposure at ISO 800. Again lightly processed in Lightroom.

Lots to learn but it's fun.
