A quick 30 second exposure of the Orion region of the sky, taken 16th Dec 2012, at 65mm zoom, ISO 1600, with the camera piggybacked on the HEQ5 mount. This is from my back garden in Kent, and really shows how many more stars are visible when imaging, even with such a short exposure.

It shows the Orion Nebula (M42), clearly visible just below the centre of the image in the sword of Orion.
