Even more weather over the Red Centre today…gusty winds and thunderstorms. So I reprocessed my M42 & Surrounds capture to bring out Trapezium. I was amazed at how much cloud detail is brought out by strong color contrast—the tentacles reaching from the OII cloud into the larger nebula look positively electric!

BQ, I agree,  so many aspects to this object, nice color contrast picture makes it stand out really different than most shots. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks to all for the likes!

Thanks for the kind words, mate! I feel like I've spent most of my time trying to bring out details from the noise in the much wider area (given the field of the 200mm lens) so I've missed out on the wispy details of the bright areas within. Now I feel like I need a little more zoom to do it justice (this pic is full resolution, and the stars aren't getting any prettier at higher scaling!). At f/15 my Mak is just too slow to bring out this part of the nebula, so I might just have to shoot it with my f/6 C5.
