Running to Orion

An old favorite revisited with a new optic and camera. The Running Man, looks like he's running towards M42. Quite pleased with this refractor. I experimented with the exposure to make sure the trapezium was resolved wihtout blowing out the core of Orion. The deep full well capacity of the imaging chip on this camera allowed me to get quite a bit dynamic range with a single exposure length.
