    Hello,

    I am new to this forum so thought I would post my latest image of M 42 taken from the centre of Australia at Ayers Rock where I work as an Astronomy Supervisor at the Ayers Rock Resort. We have stunning skies here.

    This image consists of 3h 30m of luminance data with 2 hours of red, green and blue data. I also took 10 second LRGB data and 30 second LRGB data to reveal the core.
    Taken with my Tec 140 on an AP1100 with SBIG STT 8300 with self-guiding filter wheel.

    Comment and advice more than welcome.
