Another M42 - squeezed out all I could
      #5676927 - 02/13/13 01:25 AM Attachment (30 downloads)

I was only able to get 90 mins of exposures and I think I squeezed out all I could. I am looking forward to capturing more lights on the next clear night. Thanks for looking.
To eliminate the saturated core I blended the different exposures using layers in Photoshop. I am hoping to get more time to reveal more dust.

Very pretty colors in this image, Steve and a first rate job with your HDR combining.
