Pedro,
That’s one of the most beautiful images I have seen of M42, amateur or professional. That refractor does very nicely and your processing skills are to be admired.

👍🏻👍🏻. James.

One of my best views of any galaxy was of M101 back in 1985 through a friend’s 15” F4.1 classic Dobsonian. We had nice dark skies back then and I remember the galaxy looking like a pale version of what you see/do in images. I could visually see nearly all the HII regions and star clouds. It was awesome. I’ll never forget that view. Though rebuilt my friend still has that scope.

Excellent images Pedro!!

James.

M33!! Years back I used my Coulter 10.1" and my friends 15" dobsonian to find and identify many of the HII regions and star clouds in the galaxy visually. That was back when we had much darker skies. I had always intended to search for the system's globulars but never got around to it. They would be stellar or near so in appearance. And faint!

I did find Mayall II which belongs to M31. It was a tiny faint fuzzball appearing as an out of focus star near two other dim stars. I remember having to use high magnification to pin it down. This was with the 10.1" under rural skies.

Awesome and thank You Pedro. I'll have to consult my records and see how many of these I have found. Certainly not near all of them! I'll save this image as well for future use. Now mostly for use with Slooh but when I move to my Dad's I will have much darker skies to probe M33. I can see a few from my house at the current time with my 10.1" and 12" dobs with NGC-604 being the easiest.

Is this image yours?
