Very nice! The galaxy image is lovely. M42, looks a bit magenta, but you did get some good detail in it

Both excellent shots, but I especially like the first. I wish I could capture that much detail in Orion myself, but my only comments about it would be the magenta tinge, blown out core and bright stars. Very good.
