NGC1977 & M42 or Running Man Nebula & Orion Nebula by Greg McCall

– The image was taken over two Saturday nights (9th & 16th Jan 2021) at Terrey Hills (on the north side of Sydney)
This is my first image taken unguided.
I used an Astro-Physics Mach2 mount. Before imaging, I created a tracking model of the sky (using APPM) so I didn’t have to guide.
Images were taken using a QHY600M camera, a SkyWatcher ESPRIT 120ED OTA and Chroma 50mm filters
It’s an LRGB image with Ha enhancing the red and luminance.
