Imaging the Orion Nebula with a DSLR and the SkyGuider Pro

On a cold but crystal clear 28 degree night, I balanced and aligned the SkyGuider Pro, attached my DSLR and focused in on the Orion Nebula, a target I had been waiting to image since first getting into astrophotography.

Located roughly 1,300 light years away, the Orion Nebula is one of the closest stellar nurseries to our planet. It’s impressive size and gorgeous colors makes it one of the most viewed and photographed objects in the night sky. This 50 minute exposure is beyond what I expected to get for my first attempt at photographing this beautiful nebula.
