Multiple 50 second images images stacked with DSS, Canon EOS10, ISO 1600, Celestron Evolution 8 with f6.2 focal reducer.

Orion, normally a winter constellation was well risen at 4am on Monday Morning during Lunar Eclipse. The absence of clouds and light from my suburban neighbourhood allowed me to take this picture, the first time I have captured M42, being a relative newcomer to astrophotography.
