The Orion Nebula 2.1.16

This image is a 30-second integration taken with my Mallincam JrPro EX. Scope was the VRC6; .5x focal reducer and the UHC filter. This is a pretty decent image taken under reasonable seeing, although Orion was in the "sky glow" zone. Note how much longer the integration took than those with the DSm--about 3 times longer, due to the relative insensitivity of color imagers when compared to monochrome chips.
