NGC457. The Owl Cluster aka ET Cluster. One single 2:15 min. exposure. Unguided.
I keep beating this one into the ground but it's a good one to practice on. Still having a hard time polar aligning. M42 through a 8" Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope. One single minute-long exposure. Un-modified Nikon D3300. Guitar strings for the diffraction spikes. #astrophotography #m42 #orionnebula
