Orion region

This image is of the region around Orion taken with a full frame camera and 24mm lens. It shows a lot of detail including part of the milky way to Orion's left and several patches of bright and dark luminosity. These include Barnard's loop to the left of Orion's belt, the Rosette nebula further left with the cone nebula above it and the seagull nebula to the left of Sirius.
Modified Canon 6D Camera with Sigma 24mm F/1.4 lens operating at f/2.8 on iOptron Skytracker mount.
Two sets of 4x240s exposures at f/2.8 and ISO 640 , one with no filter and one with a Cokin P 830 diffusion filter to enhance the brighter stars were blended to give this result.
