First look of the year (finally !!) and I wasn't disapointed by the look of Orion in my scope !
I think it's a little bit tricky to take a nice picture of Orion Nebula, because the center is a little bit over exposed ! I try my best, and I'm quite happy ! All advices to improve are welcome, fellow astronomers friends ! :)
