This was taken l1/7/2021 with an 80 mm apochromatic refractor and a dedicated astronomical camera. I took 12 - 5 minute exposures of each of the colors and Ha. This is a total of 4 hours of exposure time and is probably the best one I have taken to date. The little blue reflection nebula to the left is called Running Man and is typically taken at the same time as Orion.
