Astronomy Now: Orion Constellation/Nebula by DSLR/telescope

Below, I used the telescope to photograph the Orion Nebula. Stars have some tails. A more success image is the one shot on October 21, 2012.

Ocular: No
Camera: Nikon D80 body
Exposure: 25 sec

Above are edited images.
Below are the original photos.

Originals: exposures of 20, 25 and 30 seconds.

Last night, I went out with the telescope on the outskirts of Baia Mare city. It was an acceptable temperature for this period of 5 degrees. The sky was completely clear. I can not say that this night was successful, but is my duty to post here what I have achieved with and without telescope.

Above are images of Orion constellation photographed without telescope. I've posted here the original images to see the difference for every more 5 seconds exposure in each image. Notice the light pollution in each of the three pictures. The level rises as the exposure is longer. At 30 seconds, the picture is already orange.
