Orion Nebula (M42)
The Orion Nebula (M42) is a diffuse nebula located in constellation of Orion. It is one of the most popular objects in the night sky and is visible with the naked eye from a dark location. Near the center you will find the Trapezium (the small group of four stars) containing some of the youngest stars in the Milky Way. Can you find the wolf face near the Trapezium? This image consist of 20 x 30 sec, 10 x 60sec, 5 x 180sec, and 5 x 300 sec images taken with a QHY-10 CCD camera, TPO RC telescope, and Celestron CGEM mount. Images were stacked in Nebulosity and processed in Photoshop CS6 utilizing layer masks to maintain the detail around the Trapezium.
