Sept 1st early morning viewing

This morning the air was clear and winds calm so I was able to get both M45 and M42. Used 50mm eyepiece in my C8 and a UHC filter on the Orion Nebula.


Very nice

That is interesting view. I assume that the picture is of the eyepiece but the camera has a bit of eye relief? Did you have to have an extension tube or something to keep the eyepiece housing dark?

No I have a phone holder that allows the phone to be place directly above the eyepiece. Occasionally I do get light leakage in that space and I have to close that gap
