Itís a trap!

Iíve pushed this one pretty hard but Iím hoping it hasnít broken down. The trapezium!
137x60s
I am contemplating doing some 10s exposures at some point into the future to see whether I can get a better split of the F star. 60s was chosen as its as long as I could go without saturating the core but also allowed for the fainter nebulosity within the Orion complex to be captured in one exposure.

Thanks Bart, it has potentially been a bit over processed but there is a lot going on in there

Lovely. Moody and colourful. The traps are shown nicely.

Reminds me of the X files show where the aliens had a book called "To serve man" - its a menu!

Nice detail Colin, with lovely colour but maybe just a little too much saturation for me. The detail is cool though.

Intriguing Col, saturation a bit too high in my opinion but it is a very detailed image of M42 core!
Cheers

Amazing.

Would you consider doing a video, and using lucky imaging?

Best,
Mike
