During the month of March, I was able to take advantage of the clear skies in three different days to image Orion’s nebula.
The First Day
On March 11, 2015, I tried imaging Orion’s Nebula (M42) it was a good night. I was able to get a few shots of M42 before it went below my house. I hoped I could get more pictures of M42, but before I could, it went behind my house. I was out of luck.
I proceed to image Jupiter with my DSLR camera. I took a lot of frames, but the quality of those frames were very bad. I couldn’t stack them to get a good picture. 😦 Maybe things will turn out better next time.
The Second Day
On March 13, 2015, I tried to image M42 again. It was a clear night, and I took some more pictures. I set my camera to image M42 for a while. I got the pictures, but I realize that while it was taking the pictures, M42 set behind my house. The majority of my pictures were of my house in the dark. Sadly, I had to delete those pictures.
After the M42 failure, I started imaging Jupiter again, and I failed to get any good frames.
The Last Day
Stay tuned for my next post, where I will talk about the last day of my M42 imaging days… For Now.
