Description

An attempt at the Orion Nebula using a One Shot Colour camera in a badly light polluted area. A series of short and long exposures combined, with basic nuts & bolts processing applied, nothing special.

I am hoping to add extra data to the set before winter is out, and some more Ha exposures, and maybe some Sii and Oiii.
