This looks great.  My first DSO couldn't hold a candle to this one!

Within my own lifetime this would probably have been the best M42 ever taken. AP has made pretty incredible progress.

Yes. It was incredibly difficult for plate film photographers to manage the dynamic range of M42.

And as you can see, I already bought Astrodon filter, and I don't know why, I got nicer results with my Astrodon filter last year than my Optolong Ha filter in filter wheel this year, and this one exactly why I kept going into DSO and I will never give up even it is under red zone light pollution sky, and this is another reason I want to buy a TAK, so I never give up later at all after so much spending ;) 

If you want, I can post same this target again here but I can call it "My first ever LRGB of M42", so is that counted too or only first ever at all?
