M42 in Orion
20 x 8 sec exposures, iso800, taken at prime focus.
Images stacked in Deep Sky Stacker, processed in Photoshop CS2, final processing in Paint Shop Pro Photo X2.
The initial images were captured from my garden, which is around 14 miles south of London so there is a fair bit of light pollution to deal with.
