That M42 looks like my first attempt during Xmas hols :D

I'm learning more and more about the hobby, after good polar alignment the most important and biggest leap for me is using software properly, that being photoshop and curves. All of a sudden those dull flat images look quite good and you become confident that what you are doing has the correct basics to build on.

have a look at this web page about curves..

Am sure the jewel box could be tweaked to bring out more light and contrast.

Good effort BTW :)
