M42 Orion and NGC 1977 Running Man nebulae. Captured with a Nikon D300 using 12x30 second frames at 1000 ISO though a Stellarvue ST80 480mm telescope and processed with PixInsight. This was the first light with this telescope, first astrophotography image I've shot, and the first time processing any image with PixInsight.
