    Doing some observing with that small refractor donated to the club last meeting (AT80ED, 3.1 inch F7). After Jay and I cleaned it up I obtained an Orion motorized mount from Randy and got out the last 2 nights to observe and image with the scope and my Orion 6.3 Mpixel camera.
    The file below is an animated gif of the Trapezium area of M42 at different exposures (.5 sec, 4 seconds, 8 seconds and 16 seconds. This area is really interesting and often gets overexposed in whole nebula pictures.
    Hopefully the animation works!
