Job 9:9

Job 9:9-10
9 He is the Maker of the Bear and Orion,
the Pleiades and the constellations of the south.
10 He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed,
miracles that cannot be counted.

M42 The Orion Nebula

The moon was shining bright, so I wasnt able to correct my Andromeda Galaxy image I did yesterday.  I did put new batteries in my clock drive, and instead of imaging Andromeda, I opted for M42 instead, being it is brighter, and farther away from the moon.  Even though we had a nice high bright moon, I was able to capture this:

This image consists of 14 good frames stacked in Deep Sky Stacker.    Frames were taken at iso 800, with 1.5 minute exposures using the Canon Rebel T3 with the 300mm lens.
