I just put your image into ACR and increased the Blacks Lever.

Needless to say, the results are stunning. I think you should seriously consider doing this. (I have since deleted the shot from my hard-drive.)


See the light.

Chris, Looking_Searching, Unmarked Panic. Thanks for your feedback. I highly appreciate it.

Chris, you are absolutely correct about Alnitak and I didn't realize it then. I am going to do an HDR next time.Possibly a few exposures of about 15-30 secs, a few at 2mins should help with keeping detail in the bright areas.

Looking_Searching: there is some detail in the dark areas but just not enough because the overall exposure wasn't long enough. Next time I will just get more data.

Worth a try and probably the only option with a DSLR. Its a bit like M42, everyone has a go at it without realising the issues of imaging a subject with such a huge dynamic range. Get the trap right and you miss out on the spectacle of the dark clouds but get the clouds right and blow the core. Its on my list for the next few months as I have never tackled it properly.
