M42, M43 & Running Man

This is from my first year of taking prime-focus deep sky astrophotos. It is the full 35mm frame. North is down in this view, which is not the normal presentation used today. And yes, claiming I imaged the Running Man Nebula in this shot is a stretch given it barely shows up at all. But it's technically within the frame. Posted Image
