Nice job! I had a dream of an M42 project this year but clouds all winter break kind of did me in (from my location I can't shoot past meridian due to trees... so she's almost gone for the year.

You did a great job! Definitely a nice image.

Amazing amount of detail coming out of the 65mm refractor. Good job. I just finished shooting this one in a full Hubble palette myself. It never gets old.

Way to sneak in those photons before the clouds arrive. Nice processing too!

I am socked in with clouds now as predicted. Just as well, as the Moon is starting to get pretty obvious. I will catch some color data on the February New Moon cycle. I am really looking forward to seeing this project in HaRGB. Thanks for all the kudos!
