Wide Field Orion by phrostie
Wide Field Orion
Ever have one of those nights when everything that could go wrong does?
well okay, I concede that an asteroid didn't crash on my camp site but just about everything else went wrong.
I ended up putting my camera on a regular tripod and seeing what I could get.

So far this is it.
about a 5 minute break in the clouds when no one was driving up with a car or turning on "porch lights" for their RV.
oh, and the new/used AVX died.  hopefully it's fixable.

41 frames taken at ISO3200 and 6 seconds.
Stacked in Registax

Mixing Orion by phrostie
Mixing Orion
This is the layering of Orion From inside the dome by phrostie.

All images were taken with a Canon T2i(full spectrum) mounted on an Orion 8" f3.9 using a Celestron Advanced VX mount.

The Top Image is Hydrogen Alpha.
I used a Badder 7nm Ha filter.
30 frames were stacked. 
Each frame was taken at 30 seconds and ISO 3200.

The second Image is a mix of Hydrogen Beta and Oxygen III.
I used an Orion Ultrablock filter.
30 frames were stacked. 
Each frame was taken at 30 seconds and ISO 3200.

The third image is the two mixed together.
I used Gimp.  Created a second layer and set the properties to Lighten Only.
Then I reduce the background brightness by stretching it in Color-Curves.

It's not my best Orion, but it shows if you are willing to do a little work, there are options in the city.

A few other items to note:
Each filter will have a (very slightly) different focus.  So I have to check my focus every time I add, remove or change filters.
Since I do not use a filter wheel, I have to find a reference to ensure that the camera has the same rotation every time I change filters.
If you look closely, I didn't get the rotation exact between the Ha frames and the UB frames.
After stacking I rotated the layered image in Gimp.
