Description

This is the famous Orion nebula, also known as Messier 42 or M42. The nebula is a huge cloud of gas and dust, so big that many new stars are currently being born there. Among them are the stars of the Trapezium open star cluster which generated most of the light we see on the picture. M42 is visible with the naked eye as the middle ‘star’ of the Orion ‘The Hunter”s sword. This shot was taken with a Canon EOS 600D mounted on a telescope, with 30 a second exposure and ISO 800.
