M42 Orion nebula

Less than an hour exposure on the M42 region with the 200mm SLR and the 6nm Ha filter has produced a much deeper image than I was expecting - especially as the shot was unbinned.

Captured in ArtemisCapture, calibrated in ImagetoolsCa, DDP in maxim, thuggery in photoshop.

This image was autoguided using my 400mm focal length refractor and my black and white SC1 webcam.
