Nikon D750 with a Nikon 200-500 lens. Shot 44 images at 30 sec each ISO 800 f5.6 on a Sky Guider Pro. Stacked in Starry Sky Stacker, edited in Photoshop. Very minimal editing as the image emerged very clean and clear.

Image Details:

I was out in my driveway on the first clear cold night in New Kingston, NY. I had just dropped my camera and lens about 6 ft while shooting the Andromeda Galaxy, and wanted to test its functionality so I switched gears to The Orion Nebula. Turned out great I think, and best of all, my camera and lens are still miraculously working.
