Default ASTRO: Orion Nebula

Another one with the TAK FS 102. Approx 30min of data with 6 subs. Taken
with a modified Canon 400D @ 800asa.

Nice result, Joe. I hope you don't mind, but I messed around with that
image in photshop, and there appears to be a lot more data embedded in it.
Here is what I came up with (admittedly, the stars are a little bloated,
but more of the nebula comes out. I could probably reduce the bloating,
but after all, all I had to work with was the low resolution image you
provided. What do you think?

This looks nice and natural Joe. Unfortunately my only scope that gives nice
stars over the full field of my EOS300D is my 70/700mm guidescope....

Seems to be the Orion Nebula season is coming early this year. We don't
even have snow yet. The lake is still liquid even.

Colors look quite good. Those modified cameras are looking better all
the time.

Beautiful image Joe!!

I'm use to a more restricted field of view. The attached is about 15 minutes
of RGB data taken with an STL-1301E and 20" F/8 RC at prime focus. It could
take me the rest of the winter to cover the field you have!
