M42 from my backyard. Yay, clear sky for the first time in over a month! The moon was pretty high in the sky (about 80%), but screw her, clear sky!
48x 120s 1600ISO. Yeah, I know, I burned the core... I'll know for next year...
The Astronomik CLS-CCD clip-on filter is pretty good, but I really think it blocks most of the blue and green.
