M42 (SXV-M25)

Updated: 12.24.04

This represents the full sized view of the M42 image, with only some cropping at the far extremes due to wander/shift during image acquisition. There is some bit of curvature at the corners, but most likely due to slight miscollimation and spacing of ccd chip to flattener.
