Description

Took the last chance to get some RGB data for my Orion. Funny enough after almost three months of consecutive rain we now have a good weather period. As my views past the south meridian are very limited I am very happy to get this one with halfway decent integration time. Looking forward to next years Orion season, I am saying bye to this constellation until next year
