(Below Right) M42 and Running Man - 80mmED-APO, F7.5, ISO 1600, (9) 3min. Two things are different about this image: 1.) Without the Focal Reducer the image magnified and has a narrower field of view, and 2.) The inner core of Orion is overexposed--the left image layered shorter exposures to regain the detail in the core that the right image has lost.
