Quote Without any doubt my favourite image as of yet! I actually had no plans to try to capture the orion nebula this night, but when I saw that orion had rised so much it was impossible to resist! Thanks to the hard winds (10m/s) it was impossible to take any long exposures, but even with this short exposure I think it came out pretty well. I had hoped at least some colour would come out, but it just turned out black and white. Oh well, I'll try to do better next time! Quote
