The Orion nebula with a LN300 video camera

A LN300 video camera, fitted with an IR/UV cut filter was placed at the Newtonian focus of a Star Discovery, f/5, 150mm Newtonian and 150 frame AVIs were captured at 4 different exposures. The AVIs were stacked in Registax and the resulting images were derotated and stacked in Deep Sky Stacker. The resulting image was post processed in Photoshop:

An animation was made of the separate exposures and the final image to show the information that can be extracted from the images when combined.
