Twenty seven exposures of eight minutes captured last week are now stacked to create this image of Messier-78, a bright reflection nebula in the Orion molecular cloud complex. M78 is 1600 light-years away with a radius of around five light-years.

Ta mate. Next new moon I'm thinking of having another crack at it higher in the sky and without the bushfire smoke around. Going to try longer subs too.
