Orion Nebula Astrotracer
Posted By: Grippy, 12-29-2015, 07:36 PM

Well I've been playing with Orion shots and DSS for a little bit with some good results with the K-50, GPS Astrotracer and Sigma 70-300mm, DSS seems a little temperamental sometimes and won't stack properly, however this morning it was stacking like a champ so I threw a few sessions worth (before moon has been out) of pics at it, and it stacked to my delight.
I can't remember the exact exposure time DSS came up with but it was over an hour all up.

Amazing how you can bring out such detail out of such a distant subject.

Thanks. I now need to give this a crack again with the newly acquired K3 and Bigma
