Attached is my capture of the great Orion Nebula (M42) from November of last year, this target has been on my list for a while. Though it is a good image for 79 minutes, revisiting to acquire additional data providing more faint dust and nebula detail is on the horizon. Processing M42 was a challenge in PixInsight, due to HDR techniques, blending, and masking! Any pointers on how to improve would be greatly appreciative, thank you for looking.
