That's an amazing image from a newt; one of the best I've seen! No tracking mount?

Very nice result for a single shot!!!
Do you think about stacking a series of photos? It would improve IQ dramatically.
Best regards, Pete

Thanks everyone! Pete, I do, but for some reason I was having technical difficulties with my stacking software.

Thanks! Yes, I use an EQ-G tracker mount and a starshoot autoguider.

I would definitely give it another try. Orion is very bright, fainter objects will profit a lot from stacking. I use DeepSkyStacker which is really easy aftee a short while. Here is a link to some good tutorial on DeepSkyStacker

Your equipment looks fine. I use a mini tracking mount without a guider and no telescope but normal lenses on my K3. Stuff like you have could be future gear for me....hope to see more of your work
