Orion Nebula

Posted: September 6, 2019 in Astronomy

I havent done any astrophotography for quite a while now, but I came across this folder of pictures of the Orion Nebula which I have taken at various times and thought I would share them.

The Orion Nebula (also known as M42, or NGC 1976) is a diffuse nebula located in the constellation of Orion. It is one of the brightest nebulae and may be visible to the naked eye in the night sky. It is located at a distance of 1,344 light-years from Earth.

It has always been one of my favourite photographic subjects.
