How far do want to go? My submission is strictly an exercise in extracting the maximum amount of detail/nebulosity  visible in the image ... just for fun! However, it would greatly benefit by toning it down a bit. It's way over processed for my taste.

 

I really like the OP's original image. Great detail with a very natural look.

 

Processed in Photoshop using starless processing and balanced tone mapping.

Thanks for all the submissions guys. Really cool to see everyone's take on my M42 data. Anyone want to take a stab at one of the galaxy images?

Used both AstroArt & Photoshop for this.

Pretty good DSLR data you have.

Thanks! I think the 6D's large pixels match up very well to the scope's long focal length. I don't have experience imaging and processing with a telescope other than my dob, since that's what I started with, but I've always thought that the images it takes are fairly easy to process with limited processing skills.
