Image Details:

Last night we had a brief window of clear skies. I knew I didn't have time to serious deep sky imaging, but Orion was high in the sky and clear, so I grabbed my gear and captured this shot. It is the clearest I've ever resolved this constellation with a camera. You can see the Great Orion Nebula, Flame Nebula, Running Man Nebula and even catch a hint of Barnard's Loop.
