Its was a clear day and I had a chance to do some quick imaging of the Orion Nebula at Salt Pan Reserve in the suburb of Riverwood,NSW. I was a bit hesitant because I was alone and not familiar with the place. Thankfully it was a safe and friendly place and I met a few people who were curiuos to what was I am doing. Luckily I was able to share a few stars and the nebulas with them.
