Quick check on an old favourite

After IC 342 I quickly set up the Tair 300mm to check out its field with M42. I managed a few short subs before it was obscured by the observatory roof. The result encourages me to try for something deeper when the opportunity arises. Details: Tair 300mm@5.6. 5 x 2 + 5 x 4 minute exposures @ iso1600 with CLS in DSS, FIV, CS2 & XAT.
