    Hi, all. Here is my annual M42 image, taken at prime focus with my Nikon D3200 and 127mm Mak, single 30 sec sub at ISO 800. I also posted images from previous years. Only the 2018 image was shot at ISO 1600 to bring out more detail. The images prior to 2018 were shot with my Nikon D50; the difference between the two cameras is striking!

    Now is a great time for imaging the Orion Nebula when you have clear skies. It's positioned nicely from mid to late evening, and into the wee hours (if you can brave the cold).

    Clear skies!
