Orion Molecular Complex at 70mm, f3.2. slight crop and 0.6x scale version here. First trip out with the Sky guider Pro. Pushed processing pretty hard to reveal Barnad's Loop as well as some dark and reflection nebulas. Unfortunately missed the Rosette Nebula in the original shot ;-(

Feedback or suggestions on processing welcome, i've been struggling with both of the wide field images of Orion (29mm and 70mm) that I've been working on.
