Hi all. I'm in Oregon speaking at a conference on river restoration. I brought my imaging gear, just in case I found some dark skies. I did! grin I only had a couple of hours, and I decided to try M42 again. I went a little deeper (not much). Here is the result. Critiques are always welcome.

Tyler,

A spectacular image of the Orion Nebula and surrounding region. The Running Man Nebula is also impressive.

Looks like it was well worth lugging the gear. I don't know where to look: M42 or the Running Man. Great job handling the Trapezium, too.

Hi all. Sorry about posting another version of this image, but I have been working on it for a while and wanted to get opinions. I combined the previous image with a set of 3, 5 second exposures to show the inner detail of the trapezium area, which was washed out in the first image. I also adjusted the colors to match images I have seen from more experienced imagers. What do you think?
