It's not Hubble, but I'm geeked anyways. Enclosed is a 400% magnification from a 35mm lens shot of the Orion constellation. 40 x 1 min, Fujifilm IS Pro, Nikon 35mm prime @ f3.5, ISO 800, IDAS UV/IR filter.

It still requires an arrow to point out the faint smudge and I could be completely wrong, but it's in about the right place for the Horsehead nebula...

Yup, looks like the horse to me. And you got some detail in the Flame as well. Cool.

The thing that bugged me was that I burnt out the center of M42 with only 15 second @ f3.5 subs.
