M42 in Orion

Submitted by thenakedastronomer

And yes, the obligatory M42 photo - it's just too lovely not to expose when working in that area of the sky. This was shot February 14, 2013 from Port Orchard, Washington using a Meade 8' LX200R on a Milburn wedge 15x30 sec, ISO 1600, Lepus .62 telescompressor at prime focus using a Canon T3i - with an Astronomik CLS-CCD clip fliter.
