All taken with my Nikon D600. I've had some pretty good nights here in beginning of March. Cold though, -12°C to -17°C.

I still have alot to learn with post processing, but I really enjoy Pixinsight and I'm making slow progress.

Those images are terrific. So crisp and clean for imaging from 60* north. How do you even see Orion from that far up ? :)

Although you are already better than me at DSLR imaging can I make some suggestions ? ( It wouldn't be me if I didn't )

At the temperatures you are shooting at and the exposure times, it may be best to leave Darks alone for now and see how you go on. Just a few darks will add noise to the image.

Do loads of bias frames. 50 would be better ! Also do at least 20 flats. It all helps to smooth out the calibration frames.
