This image was taken about 2 weeks ago from my backyard

Canon 1300Da and the 50mm 1.8 at f4 are a really good combination in my opinion

Wow that looks fantastic! I only found out about the Orion Molecular Cloud Complex a few weeks ago. Your photo really shows how amazing it is.

Wow, spectacular!  Well done and thanks for sharing.

I worked in Novi Sad for a year in 2002.  Loved my time in Serbia!

Thanks for the sub. Did you use any filters and a tracking mount?

I'm really new to astronomy. I've only has 2 low cloud nights so far. I'm really looking forward to Orion re-emerging from the clouds. 

I think it's really awesome what you've taken with a DSLR and prime lens.

Fantastic result, love seeing the single RAW file as well. Impressive to see Bernard's loop on the single sub as well.

Hi Olly,

I did what you said.

It is weak, but the new upper part is only 30min of data with 6x5min images. Hopefully I will be able to add more. I didnt cropped the black parts so I can see and show to others the parts that have to be filled up. :)

Great stuff! For me, widefield seems one of the more accessible areas of imaging. 
Since I last tried to image Orion etc., our orange streetlights became white LEDs.
I still have hopes my Baader UHC may have some effect... as the Astronik CLS. 😎

Bortle worse here? A lot more "gradient" too. The "settings" info very useful too.
But your images are a delight / encouragement anyway! 🙂
