G'day everyone.
Hope you're all doing well.

I wanted to share another image with you.
Here is a widefield shot of the Orion region taken on the 1st January this year.
I had borrowed a very good mate's Canon 24mm f/2.8 lens and tracking platform for this 220 sec exposure using ISO 800 and the 20Da.
I was amazed to see the camera and lens picking up Bernards Loop too.

I've also uploaded a larger version here (warning 1.2mb file)

I believe you meant, "My god, it's full of stars."

I've always liked Orion, maybe because I can actually find it. ;) Lovely shot.
