It's not very often I can get a glimpse of the Orion Nebula here in western OR. So I was especially glad when the sky was clear on Feb 6 and I could quickly get my telescope set up. Here are the Orion and Running Man Nebulas

 

Specs:

 

iOptron ZEQ25 mount
Skywatcher 80mm ED with FF/FR

Full-spectrum Canon 6d with CLS filter
Orion 50mm guide camera

23 x 150sec subs
24 x flats
20 x darks

 

Stacked in DSS and processed in Pixinsight

Sweet. The core is blown out. Take some extra frames at a shorter exposure and combine. :)
