    Great image not easy getting that definition without Zeta Orionus overtaking the image.
    Do you use Flat Field? It would really help eliminate the vignetting of the central portion of the image.
    I really like the wider FOV that the AstroTech F6.5 gives you.
    No pre-processing whatever on this. Literally my first exposures using new filter wheel and filters.
