Orion Nebula

This is made up from 16 images taken with my Nikkor 300mm f2.8 lens and another 16 taken with the same lens but with a 1.4x teleconverter on it. I wasn't really sure what would happen but it seems to have come out OK. It was completely unguided (1 and 2 second exposures) and I didn't make any darks, lights or flats.

 

If you look at a larger version you can see some star trails, I think they came from a test shot that was about 5 seconds or so that seems to have made it through.
