Picture of the Week

The Belt Stars of Orion is this week’s Picture of the Week. Untold hours (in excess of 8 for sure) went into this one using a single Sky90 refractor and M25C OSC CCD. Alnitak (bottom left), Alnilam (centre) and Mintaka (top right) form the famous 3 “Belt Stars” asterism in Orion.

Although I don’t think I can improve much on this image at this resolution, I do want to get a bigger field of view of this region with the 200mm lenses, the ASI 2600MC Pro OSC CMOS cameras, and the Optolong L-Enhance filters. Yet again this was an object I was hoping to get last season, and yes, the weather had other ideas. This is a thankless hobby for sure.
