Another shot of Orion taken a few morning's ago. Tinypic has ruined it but on the original you can not only see M42 and the Flame Nebula but the beginning's of the nebula that has the Running Man! 50mm at 2.2 13 secs ISO1600.

That's a beautiful photo John, pinpoint focus and love the clouds at the lower left and bottom. I think the image turned out fine, though they never look as good as the original file for sure. Good to see that 13 seconds hasn't shown any noticeable trailing, usually only gets that good around the polar region. Thanks.

Well caught John. Actually I can make out both the Running Man and the Flame in that.

I fully sympathize with your comment about Tinypic. I've been having a similar problem with a shot  of the same area (i.e. Orion) - also with a 50mm lens which I took last Sunday/Monday. I get it too look OK in Photoshop & then upload the result to my Photobucket account where it appears somewhat brighter & therefore brings out defects (usually a very uneven looking background) not previously seen when viewing in PS. Not sure why this should be as I'm viewing both images on the same computer & monitor.

Oh well...................................
