First of all I love the star trail image. It's the kind of imagery I was hoping for when we got the forum going. Print it and frame it

Yes, we have had a go at M42 lately. What solved it for me was to use daylight WB. I originaly trusted the camera, but then I noticed that the lightpollution was wery gray-orangy-red. So I changed it to 5400K, as in daylight. That gave me some red to work with. I will, as soon as the sky clears, point my 60Da and a Leica lens or two at Orion, and see what happens.

Free your mind, and your camera will follow...
