A fast and simple autumn shot on a typical winter target: south of Orion.
With 120 s exposure the very center of Orion Nebula was completely saturated, so I've integrated it with an old image captured with my Celestron C 9.25: aligned, scaled down and "degradated" to the Elamrit level.

The result is quite good considering the setup used.

I've already shot this area in the past, wit a different setup but with similar results.

It was one of the very first images I've post on Astrobin.
