D100 and M42

Hello all,

Just wanted to post a super short exposure of M42 taken with a Nikon D100 through my venerable Meade 8" 826c reflector (25+ years old).

This shot was taken at prime focus (f/6 - 1200mm). The exposure was 30 seconds at ISO 640. And the image has been reduced 33% to make it quicker to download.

It's great that these new cameras can breathe new life into old equipment!

Clear skies!
