These days I have a slightly revised my latest photographic work dedicated to his Majesty M42 and surroundings. This new version in my opinion is more balanced in color and has a higher contrast within M42, also placed below the technical data of the recovery. 48 exposures of 300s to 800 iso, 15 poses by 30s to 800 iso, 15 poses by 15s to 800 iso, 5 Dark, Flat no. I used a Canon 5D Mark II changed Centralds room, fire-refractors APM 130 f6 reduced to F3.7, all on Gemini G53F under a great sky over Italian Dolomites.
