Practice, practice!
This is my second try with Orion, I think that huge red nebula must be Barnard's Loop? M42 is too bright I think, what a shame. :(

Also tried Andromeda for the first time, though EnfuseGUI crashes so I had to stack it with DeepSkyStacker.
It vanishes colors pretty darn well, but I pulled saturation up 100% before stacking. It seemed to help a bit.

Orion is single shot, 18 minute exposure with 105mm Sigma and Adromeda is stacked from 15 three minute exposures with 70-200mm f/4L.

Feedback welcome!

That's pretty impressive to get the Horsehead and Barnard's Loop with an unmodified camera. You must have some nice dark skies where you are.
Well done.

^^ what Steve said :)

with the faintness of Barnard's Loop, capturing it without overexposing M42 is difficult.
It could be done with some post processing ;)

Great stuff! It looks amazing.

I can see a faint streak above M31 in the 2nd picture..any ideas of what it is?

Well, Ive been photographing deep sky like 5 times now. So, its rookie stuff atleast to me. Because I realy dont understand even half of stuff that I am doing. I just do it, seems to work though, sort of... :D

Yeah pretty dark skies here in Finland, atleast in the winter.

What do you track with? 18' exposure is quite extreme - even at 105mm ! And the noise? I have a 7D which should behave roughly like your 6d - how do you get rid of that?

I used friends astrotrac, with 6D at ISO 400 there is pretty much no noise. :)
