I won't be wearing a costume. I'll just hide upstairs.
On the unadjusted/unscaled image, you can resolve multiple objects in Iota Orionis (very bottom of the sword). mmmm, double-binary-goodness. Some of the red 'stars' are hot pixels. Stupid me forgot to get a black reference frame until after coming back inside to the warm, so I had to best-guess the noise reduction. Not that this camera needs much of that. There are quite a few more colours in the less-compressed/bigger version.
Single exposure, 15 sec at f1.4, 50mm Nikkor prime (70mm equiv on DX camera), ISO 400.
because New Scientist is out on thursdays, and if I'm lucky (I am this week), there will be something exciting happening in theoretical physics. failing that, there's always something exciting going on in another field.
failed to pull focus, then lost the light before I could get a Real Camera on the case. ho hum.
