Belt And Sword
08/02/2013
A recrop and reprocess of my first place winner at the 2013 Winter Star Party (Widefield category). Orion's belt and sword region. I mounted a modified Canon 5D with an L series 200mm lens at f/2.8 on a Paramount ME. An hours worth of 5 minute exposures was processed with PixInsight and Photoshop. In this image, I did not use ths shorter images for the core of M42. I also cropped it a bit tighter. It needs to be just a tad deeper, but this is the best I could get out of it cleanly.
