M42, the Orion Nebula

I spent a Saturday night down in Medoc, NC with the local amateur astronomy group. Had a wonderful time, despite the cold.

Here is a merged HDR of the Orion Nebula, M42. Three photos, taken a 15, 20, and 25 second exposures, and stacked with ¬†Photomatix Pro. It was taken with my Canon 5d Mark 2, Celestron 8″ Newronian telescope, and the Celestron Cg-5 mount.

Here is a timelapse of Jupiter, Orion, and Sirius rising from the same location. I’m having trouble getting it to embedd, so here is the link:¬†http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t8CVqU5-UUo
