      Description

      I wanted to try out Russ Croman's new noise reduction tool along with his star removal tool so I thought Orion would be a good test.  Sixty 5 minute exposures were used though a Borg 107FL F/3.9 astrograph and a ASI094MC color camera for this image.  I am quite happy with the results.  I could have worked a little more to blend the starless image with the background image to improve the bright star appearance, but that is a task for another day.
