Orion nebula with ED 80 / 350D

well, I guess the title says it all
One more saga on the back yard, dodging clouds for about 2 hours, but good tranparency when the clouds moved out, not bad for a urban sky.
This image consists of 15x5 min. @ 400 ISO and 10x 30 sec. for the core, not "deep" but showing good detail on the nebula structure, I used the newly aquired ED80 with no flattener, reducer or wathever, just stuck the 350d with a 2" baader moon & sky glow filter and that's it
Made also a 100% crop for the core, with the "astro frame" I like it! he he he
setup used: Sky Watcher ED80, modded Canon 350D, EQ 6 go to mount, autoguided with GPUSB and 50 mm finder with a DMK 21, stack of 15x5 min. @ 400 iso and 10x30 sec. for the core.

Steve - I complain when the weather is bad for two weeks, sometimes we dont know how lucky we are for clear skies where we live...
