Very nice capture. Love the color within the Orion Nebula. I find your technique very interesting. Well done.

Astrophotography is something that I have always wanted to get into. Just don't have the funds.

@ SteveH, yes the dslr is the cheap way to do it and unlike the dedicated asto ccd's you can also take regular every day photos too, so its win win lol. Thanks for the comment.

@kdwendorf, this was before i got a LP filter and dark site it isn't, I live on a main road so I've got street lights to contend with. Thanks for the comment.
