This image of M78 was intended as a end-of-night fast shot the same night of this image

with the idea to complete it in the following month.

Unfortunately the weather wasn't good, a now, almost forun month ahead, the Orion season is rapidly fading.

I will continue it the next year, but in the meawhile I've processed the few frames captured.

The image was VERY noisy (particularly the chrominance).
