41 Ori D
I took another stab at processing the data for this beautiful area of the sky and was not disappointed!
This bright area of the Orion constellation doesn't take many exposures to reveal the intricate details. This is just 10 3-minute exposures but it was enough.
It's a popular target, but it never gets old. Although I've visited the Great Orion Nebula (M42) and de Mairan's Nebula (M43) many times before, I believe this is my most detailed capture yet. The data is from two sessions with Stellina taken exactly one year apart on March 4th, 2021, and 2022. I sifted by hand through over 700 10-second captures to cull it down to around 560 of the 'cleanest', stacked it in AstroPixel Processor and processed it in PixInsight.
A detailed stack of eight different sessions to produce a detailed portrait of one of the largest, brightest, and most intricately detailed nebulae.
