M42 Orion Nebula
Took 17 exposures @ 60seconds each of the Orion Nebula (Prime Focus) using my Orion ST80 that is piggybacked on my Meade LX90. The image speaks for itself and the great quality of the ST80 Refractor. Sure, it's not an APO but coupled with a good DSLR, the results this little ota can produce are simply stunning! Yet another great ota from Orion! Small, light weight, great for guiding or to use as a secondary scope piggy backed. Great job Orion and Clear Skies!
