M 42 65mm/102mm Combine Crop

I just started my 3rd year of Astrophotography and I've noticed a pattern....this time of year is horrible for imaging. Again I'm stuck on M42, I collected far from enough data and have gone weeks without imaging. So here's this years' 4th image combined with last spring's efforts taken with my ED102T & QHY9M. Hopefully it's clear soon, there's other targets to grab!
