M42-The Great Orion Nebula on 12/21/09

The Orion Nebula is up again and is beautiful as always. Unfortunately, I’ve lost my remote for the D50 or I would have some nice wide field shots. Before I went in, Mars was peeking over my house and I was able to visually make out a polar cap and a bit of surface detail. Very cool and I hope to image it soon.

  1. That’s a really nice shot, Ed.

    If you lost your remote for the D50, get a remote shutter control from Shoestring Astronomy. I got one for my D50 and with Stark Labs’ DSLRShutter, it’s an awesome combination.
