I finally had the possibility to make this picture, 3 clear nights during christmas holidays (even with some high passing clouds, ahah).
This is a 3 tiles mosaic of Orion. If the weather allow me to, I'll had more to get a wider field.

Each tile was preprocessed and integrated in Pix.
Gradient removal and mosaic merging in APP (gradient were very strong, APP is really great for removing them).
Final image processing in Pix.
Very basic processing, to keep a quite "natural" rendering.

I'm quite satisfied with this picture, I hope you like it too !

CS, David.
