Orion the Hunter

Probably many of you heard and saw Orion Nebula – there is not much to add in this area actually. I also wanted to have it pictured, but last year attempt was not very successfull. I tried this winter one more time with narrowband filters – hydrogen, oxygen and sulphur, and here we have better in my opinion result.
