Great Orion Nebula Wide Field: This image is the First-Light Image with my new refractor telescope Takahashi FSQ 106 ED, which I bought primarily for high quality wide field imaging in connection with the SBIG STL-11000M CCD camera.

The image displays the wonderful skyscape around the Great Orion Nebula with its extended gas and dust clouds.
