This one has been really hard work due to atrocious weather recently. What's with the clear cold days but cloudy nights? Made over about 6 weeks, taking an hour at a time during any available clear periods. I'll never forget the first time I saw M42 through my home made rickety wooden 8" reflector on a freezing January night when I was about 15. Far more detail here but still not quite the same experience.

Approx 18.2 hours from Bortle 5 skies. Hi res on Astrobin.
