I caught a nebula!

Tonight the skies were a bit more clear, so I tried talking photos of M42, the Great Nebula in Orion. It’s not exactly a Hubble image, but it’s at least recognizable. I tried experimenting with different settings on my camera and lens to see what worked best.

This image was taken with

  • Camera: Canon 50D
  • Lens: Minolta MC Tele Rokkor HF, plus Fotodiox MD-EOS adapter
  • f-stop: 8
  • Exposure: 17s
