Messier 42 & Neighborhood

The data set was collected at the same time while the TOA-130NS was taking the close-up version of the same target on our dual-scope system.

This image is an HDR composite of 12s/120s/300s exposures on Red, Green, and Blue channels from our FSQ-106EDXIII. The rendering focuses on the nearby regions of the Great Orion Nebula. The core is left at “brighter” and has a more natural look & feel. The presentation takes a different approach from the TOA-130NS version. It’s fun to see how many details the RGB channels could get to without the luminance data. 

Cheers and CS!
