M42 – Only 18 mins with the QHY8L

Finally got round to processing some data from earlier in the year.  This was of M42, 60 second subs calibrated with Bias, Flat and Dark calibration frames.  Total integration time 18 mins (18x60s).  Resultant image is very noisy, it needs a few hours worth of subs.  Looking forward to next year when I should be able to capture a few more subs to add to this.
