Orion Nebula (trapezium)

My first long exposure using a cooled CCD camera. Should have used a barlow, settings need improving, need to take some darks (forgot as never had to before). 30 minutes @ 13 x 1 minutes frames (several dropped). 2 unuseable due to a KOOM FAY. Registax would only accept 10,000 frames and used 707/4575
