Here is a close up view on M42

A HDR composite taken with my Explore Scientific ED80 APO mounted on HEQ5-Pro with focal reducer and ASI224MC. Four images of various times to get different exposures plus a couple with an IR pass filter. Just fitted in the FOV after swiveling the camera to get the best fit

Processed with GIMP with image registration plugin plus Photomatix for Linux which has brought out the colours. [Neill Mitchell]
