The Great Orion nebula and The Running Man by Captain-Marmote The Great Orion nebula and The Running Man by Captain-Marmote
EDIT - The contrast has been increased slightly to bring a better balance to the blacks, this also makes it identical to the version that was featured on 1x.com

Orion nebula M42 bottom and The running man NGC 1973 top.
M42 is a diffuse nebula situated south of Orion's Belt. It is one of the brightest nebulae, and is visible to the naked eye in the night sky. M42 is located at a distance of roughly 1,344 20 light years; and is the closest region of massive star formation to Earth. The M42 nebula is estimated to be 24 light years across.

The nebula is visible with the naked eye even from areas affected by some light pollution. It is seen as the middle "star" in the sword of Orion, which are the three stars located south of Orion's Belt. The star appears fuzzy to sharp-eyed observers, and the nebulosity is obvious through binoculars or a small telescope.

Taken with:
Canon 1100D (modified)

NEQ6 mount

Exposure time of 3 and a half hours

This uses all the same data as the previous uploads but the raws were edited before stacking

The 1100D has a dual filter system, one to block IR and UV and another to correct for red response, cutting it by about 75% at a certain wavelength, removal of the filter allows the camera to detect 656nm which is the spectrum of light emission nebulae produce if you google "astonomiser" you can look at a lot more info as they specialise in modifying eos cameras
