With a Lucky couple of Clear Nights, I decided to continue imaging With my old unmodded Canon 400D, for the fun of it and see how far I can go with the inevitable light polution and Limited data.
M42 is getting close to horizon for me now, so light polution was quite extensive and some flex in the setup cropped up in the image, as the scope was nearly horizontal.
