Wide field around M45

I know what you’re thinking: this image has nothing on this other one (courtesy AAPOD), but neither have my skies compared to those, or my equipment compared to that one, or my lack of a guider camera compared to the lack of such lack.

But one day, sooner or later, I’ll produce pictures like that. For the time being, I have to make do with light pollution capped images at two and half, three minutes top (with the 50mm lens). Bear with me.
