While I state that I don't normally stack images, with this image I did, I feel like such a fibber! Not many images to be fair but Simon Dawes, a fellow Crayford AS member, set me the challenge and I dutifully responded. So while not the typical stack of RAW images this is from a number of jpeg light and dark's. I wanted some help understanding Deep Sky Stacker and Simon held a short tutorial on our Thursday meeting last week. The image of M42 is the result of his tutorial and I hope you like it, I'm rather proud. If Simon has managed to keep himself safe from Werewolves and Vampires, I may ask him again for more tutorials!
