Orion Nebula - M42

 

First finished image obtained through RVO's Megrez 80mm refractor with Orion field-flattener, using a Baader-modified Canon XSi DSLR and BackyardEOS image-acquisition software -- 10 stacked images (5 light and 5 dark) of 60 seconds each, ISO 1600, driven by the Losmandy mount but unguided, processed with DeepSkyStacker and Photoshop.
