Deep View of M42 in H-Alpha

Taken over 2 nights, I captured about 10 hours of pure H-alpha data of M42: 20 x 20 minute subs, 14 x 10 minute subs, 19 x 1 minute subs.

I combined with the HDR Composition tool in PI to save the core from being saturated. Then I used LHE, a bit of Unsharp Mask, and some masked stretches to complete the image.

    Very nice!
