Messier 42 / 43 on Kodak Gold 100

Pentax Spotmatic II and SMC Takumar 300mm f/4 30 minutes exposure on Kodak Gold 100 negative film. Scanned on an Epson V600 and processed in PixInsight and Photoshop.

Sure there is some CA around the stars, but this in 1973 equipment! To be fair, there were some high clouds present on the evening this was shot, hence the brightest stars have halos.
