Late entry

Folks,

I really do not know how rate this image. The exposure and the processing was done to preserve star colours and to have the tightest stars possible.
So advice on what should be done differently would be well received.


Stats:
240 minutes in ten minute frames using a QHL8l
Telescope Takahashi Mewlon 210 with Tak .8 focal reducer and flattener.
Guiding with PHD2 multi star version




frames debayered, preprocessed and stacked in nebulosity
bog standard Startools V1.6, but no deconvolution.


Final fiddle again in nebulosity to bring up the faint detail.


By good luck there were no satellite trails so Astroart was not needed.

Hi Chris

You have captured the Orion Nebula well enough.

What exposure time?
If it was 10 minutes, that usually is way to long.
You may have to look at the gain settings to allow shorter exposures.
60 to 120 seconds would be a good start.

Also lots of wonky stars.
Have you done a collimation?

Good effort!
