Some improvement on my astrophotography...I think!

I pushed the limits of my Canon T2i by taking five 10 second shots of the Great Orion Nebula at 12,800 iso, prime focus on my original Celestron C8 and stacking the shots with Lynkeos.
The first I made gray-scale to bring out more detail.
 This one I keep in color, but as you can see, there was extreme color distortion due to the high ISO setting. Still it captured more nebula detail than my previous attempt.
And then I attempted to photograph Jupiter again...nothing special, a stack of six 10 second shots with Lynkeos and a lot of post-processing. A lot of work to do to get a more detailed image than this!
