M42 Orion Nebula

Vespera robotic telescope. 60 minutes (no filters) at a bortle 7 location. No moon. Used the already stacked TIFF file right from the telescope and then did level and curve adjustments with Affinity Photo, ran it through Topaz anti-noise AI (clear defaults), and then some vibrance and saturation boosting with Affinity Photo again. The core is a bit blown out partly due to only 50mm aperture and also the moderate light-pollution. I will return to this later on at a darker location.
