DescriptionThis is my first experiment with my filter sets of Astronomik. The site on Khamiran-Esfahan is fairly good, especially when filters used. Although M42 seems to be better pictured with HDR, but I wanted to get the ultimate power of my filters on my Modified CMOS sensor of EOS 600D.
The picture is composite of 3*120s with UV/IR cut filter @ ISO 1600 + 1*120s+1*180s with CLS-CCD filter @ ISO 1600 + 1*60s+1*180s with H-Alpha 12nm filter @ ISO 1600 + 1*60s+1*120s+1*180s with OIII 12nm filter @ ISO 800. 10 Dark frames used and in stacking process HaOIIIRGB technique was used.
