Description

The weather here in the UK has not been good for astrophotography so far this year. Even though this is only just under 5 hours it's taken 4 weeks to get the data. I was hoping to get at least double the exposure time but the moon is getting prominent now, Orion low and by next month I think it will be out of view.

There is a starless version uploaded as a revision which highlights nebula structures.
