Viewing stars from a tier 1 dark location is one of the best experiences I’ve had in my Chasing Milky Way journey. A beautiful location in the Slim Buttes, northwestern South Dakota, middle of absolutely nowhere, with no city lights for miles and miles away; paradise for me. A hint of airglow can also be seen in this photo.
Okay you're probably sick of seeing this nebula already like I am, but here's m42 in tricolor narrowband, probably the last time I'll image this object for a while. Anyways I just finished up with finals so I'll be getting a lot more imaging done! Expect some m78, cone nebula, an Orion panorama, and some more collab images with my friend @blazing_heavens !
