A View of Orion

A View of Orion


This image of the Orion Nebula (M42) was recorded from the CAA Letha House observing site. Member Christopher Christie wrote that he made the image “during the September new moon with a 65mm refractor and DSLR. As for all the details, I forget most. But it was a Canon T3, 1600 ISO with my AT65EDQ, about 3 hours of subs, stacked and processed in Pixinsight.”

Have you ever attended a Star Party ?

A star party is a gathering of amateur astronomers for the purpose of observing the sky.

Local star parties may be one night affairs, or even weekends, but larger events can last up to a week or longer and attract hundreds or even thousands of participants.
