M42 - Great nebula in Orion

M42 - Great nebula in Orion

This image was taken on the 5th March 2011.
The location was the Kielder Camp Site.
Equipment used was a Canon 350d attached at prime focus of a Intes Micro 150 Maksutov Newtonian Telescopes.
Exposure was 150 seconds.
Probably my best image of M42, to date.

I go to Kielder regularly - about 3 to 6 times a year for the [hopefully] clear skies and very little light pollution.

It's just a nice place to go with loads to explore, friendly people, and a superb welcome
