This is a reprocess of my Orion Wide Field image http://www.astrobin.com/211659/B/

The luminance was from 2013 and the color from 2015. This was taken with a 45mm Minolta lens and both an unmodified and modified Snoy Nex-5. The luminance is 70 minutes of 30 second subs and the color was 38 minutes of 120 second subs. All were taken from my very light polluted front yard on the easy coast of Florida.

For this processing I concentrated on the central portion of Orion working on better detail along with showing the stars in the field. This was a complete new stacking with different weighting and noise evaluation.
