A fairly wide view of central Orion shot with a Nikon D750 + Rokinon 135mm f/2 lens at f/2 and ISO 1600. 22 x 180" exposures. Shot in the pre-dawn hours of 10/24/19 from my home in rural central Pennsylvania, USA under Bortle class 4 skies. Many of Orion's well-known nebulae are captured including a lot of the surrounding dust.

M42 is blown out...I should have captured a few shorter exposures to blend in. Oh well - next time.

Clear skies everyone!

fantastic! maybe if you could fix orion core would be even better?

Thanks!  I should have shot some shorter exposures and mixed them in to capture the core but unfortunately I forgot.  Sadly I don't think I can do much about it now.
