Looking West (with Astrotracer 3)

A single three minute exposure with the K3iii, HDDA 16-85 and Astrotracer 3. I wanted to include the full frame here, but in future I'll probably just make a square crop for the middle.

It looks like Astrotracer 3 works. To me, all of these images look great. What lens did you use for the Orion Nebula?

It sure does! I was surprised that I got a number of "processing failed" errors even with an object as bright as the Orion nebula, while I didn't get the error when photographing 47 Tucanae. I used the DFA 150-450 at 450mm for the Orion Nebula. The hardest thing is fine focus. I think I'll need to get one or more bahtinov masks.
