Here we have the iconic winter sky area of Orion.
I have used 9 panes from the Rokinon 135mm and enhanced the key LDN1622, IC 434, M42, M78 areas with detail from longer focal length scopes taken over the last 2+ years. I have tried to not be overly aggressive instead focussing on the details and tidiness of the overall image- hope you enjoy.
Best seen at full resolution but having trouble with the full-size version showing at the moment, added a cropped version to help :)

A crop in case the full size image is not working so you can see the detail :)


A crop of some of the key areas so you can see the detail (just in case the full size will not open)
