Meissa region in Orion
, on Flickr
From a couple of nights back, I was blessed with a few clear hours in what has been non-stop clouds, rain, and today snow. This is the Meissa region of Orion which sits in the middle and just above Betelgeuse and Bellatrix. This is the result of 8 x 20-minute subs using all 3 M26C cameras, and the faint background red which fills the whole region is only JUST starting to show through. I'll need to grab some narrow-band H-alpha with the Sky 90 to see if I can bring some more out.
