Season for shooting winter Milkyway in northern hemisphere is unfortunately over now.  Recently i started shooting Orion with my canon 50mm 1.8 lens, I always wanted to shoot whole constellation in detail. Unfortunately I was able to collect only about 45 minutes of exposure and I couldn't get that nice detail and show these bright nebulas. To use this photo somehow I decided to add landscape to it.wink.gif I took it from one of mine nightscape photos and replaced the sky. The final result is pretty good for me. What do you think about this photo?smile.gif

Very nice! It appears you have more data in your shot, you should try to extract it. I made a crude flat and a stretch with your image here, I think you can probably get a fair amount more information from your original data, you might want to mess around with it a bit more.

 

Nice comp!

Not really. It's still a lot of LP here, I had hard time with removing gradients.

You edited that nicely! I have to try to edit this image again. I didn't know that there is that much signal in this data.
