Crackerjack image Peter - Bold, original and unique framing, stunning colour palette and sharp as a TAK (lol) - I'll rate that image 5 trapezium stars

That is one superb shot Peter. Until you try to image at that FL you don't realise how hard it is to produce an image like this one with that kind of FWHM across such a large sensor. I've seen FSQ shots blurrier than that. Hat's off to you.

Thanks Marc. Imaging at 3400mm takes no prisoners that’s for sure . Even the slightest tracking error shows up. FSQ’s are far more forgiving.

Ta Andy. As you have gathered there is alot more field that I cropped out for effect. The 4k x 4k file looks awesome...but I’d like to re-shoot the red channel as the seeing didn’t quite match the blue and green.

Closer to a Hubble image than a FSQ image
LOL sometimes you just have to take the senic drive, despite the traffic. Suffice to say image resolution and perceived sharpness are not equivalent. I have a cracker Sigma Art series lens that produces tack sharp imagery....but bugger-all image scale. The really tricky bit is to get both

Superb as ever Peter, real 3d look!

A bit of noise or is it Decon to the lower left? Doesn't really matter in any case!

Ta..Yep boosted the curves a little too much there...but no decon was applied.
My web posts tend to be beta versions...stellar profiles and colours still need some work as well....then there is that pesky 2.0 arc sec FWHM red data....bugger

Woah! Stunning! Cruising around it all takes ages and is of the other world kind. That waterfall of cigarette smoke fighting against the dark force... so violent!
Now I want someone who really answers all the questions and explains all things visible and invisible in the picture. Like someone here once did with Paul Haese's Lagoon M8.

Amazing image and amazing object to be viewed as imaged by an accomplished astrophotographer!

The colour version turned out marvellously. Its such a high impact image and sets a new standard for M42 images.

Ah, well, much of the turmoil in this region is due to the Vogon’s (an out-of -touch and arrogant ...race similar to the Berejiklian‘s) and their incessant hyperspace bypass construction.

According to Adams (1979) Bypasses are devices that allow some people to dash from point A to point B very fast while other people dash from point B to point A very fast.

People living at point C, being a point directly in between, are often given to wonder what's so great about point A that so many people from point B are so keen to get there, and what's so great about point B that so many people from point A are so keen to get there. They often wish that people would just once and for all work out where the hell they wanted to be.

Hope that clears up a few things for you...

Thanks Greg. There is some tidying up still to do, particularly the h-alpha stars which are half size of the RGB footprints. The weather report does not bode well for more data just yet....but I think that will help give it that final polish.

Ta. As I mentioned early on, bigish ‘scopes don’t get pointed to M42 that often, and looking at hard numbers, a FSQ will deliver 7 micron spot sizes, which is about 3 arc sec (assuming perfect conditions) . Alluna with FFC quote 5 micron spot sizes which equates to .5 of an arc second...so the potenital resolution is around 6x better. Just numbers, that’s all.
