Orion 29th Dec 2007

Seeing wasn't very good again last night, so I gave up on Mars and went back to M42 in Orion. Even though it's very low in the sky and sitting in all the light pollution, it's amazing what can be achieved, (although it is the brightest nebula in the sky).
I also managed to get some good long duration shots of a minute, which amazed me as well.
The only problem I seem to be having is the colour, when the image comes out of Deepsky Stacker it is almost all blue in colour. I have tweaked the colour in Paintshop, but I'm not sure if it is correct.
I shot all the images in Canon's RAW mode, each image was about 10Mb in size :-0

The image at the bottom is a larger version with slightly different processing.
