A picture of M42 and the Running Man Nebula I got with the few clear nights I have been getting.

About an hour of total integration time with no flats, bias or darks and unguided (playing with devil here).

I only did 90 second exposures so wind had a smaller chance of ruining subs, but long enough to get some good details.

Thought it came out great considering I have only imaged the nebula once before with my other refractor (Skywatcher Esprit 100 ED).
