M42, Orion Nebula

M46.  Check out the Planetary!  D100

Above, 160seconds, ISO 800, TOA with reducer at ~f5.8, significant crop from frame.  Had some guiding issues on this one, but I thought the planetary was cool.  12/12/2004 at NHAC Neal site.

Comet Machholz
145 sec, Nikon D100, ISO 1250, Tak TOA 130/reducer, guided using STV e-finder

You can see a faint tail to the left, and another larger/wider tail off to the upper right.  12/10/2004, clear skies and vg to ex transparency until about 11:30.  Seeing maybe a 2 out of 10, it settled down late but then the clouds formed.  Only curves and resizing; needs noise reduction.
