Very nice, much better than the ones I took of Orion last year.
Too small though, which I assume is why the posterization (the
concentric blue bands/arcs in the sky below Orion's belt) are so
visible. Hardly seems worth the effort made to 'protect' the images.

The banding comes from the conversion to 8-bit. The 16-bit is smoother.
It's an issue in dark areas, even at ISO200.

Anyway, D300, Tokina 11-16 lens at 16mm, 13 sec, ISO200, f/2.8.
