Gems in Orion

This 4X3 degrees image shows several objects in the constellation Orion:
At lower Right - Messier 78
At upper Left - LDN 1622
Crossing the frame in the middle - a part of Barnards loop
At the lower part of the loop - the star cluster NGC2112

The full frame was taken with William optics GT81 with X0.8 reducer and a color camera:
Orion Deep sky Pro 2

The regions of M78 and LDN1622 were enhanced with my older data from a 10" scope.

Full frame - 3 Hrs color
M78 inset- 95 minutes
LDN1622 inset - 3:05 Hrs

Total of almost 8 Hrs.

ASA DDM60 mount - NO guiding

Imaged from the Negev desert in Israel
