Orion Nebula   Leave a comment

The Toucam Pro webcam has a sensitivity of about 1 lux, which isn’t enough for deep sky imaging. Nevertheless, I gave it a try last October 30. Here are 500 frames stacked and drizzled. The color has been removed. Lots of stars show up, although none appear in the individual frames outside of the four stars of the Trapezium.

Here’s a better picture in grayscale:  You can see the two bright stars in the lower right in both images.
