A Close Up View Of Orion

Description

Since I have not been able to capture any new images due to the weather since October I reprocessed all of my imagery of the Orion Complex.

This is the first in this new series combining data captured from Fremont, Michigan from 2010 through to 2014 using QHY9 and QHY11 Mono CCD’s, 5 inch TMB 130 and TMB92 refractors and Takahashi E180 Astrograph
Original process here: www.flickr.com/photos/terryhancock/6752588593/in/set-7215...

The constellation of Orion is home to many treasures, including the Orion Nebula seen here. A small part of the immense Orion Molecular Cloud, M42 is perhaps the most studied extra-solar object in the sky.
It is so very close to the Earth, only 1350 light-years, that this star forming region has opened the door to our understanding the processes that create stars and planetary systems. Only 24 light-years across, The Orion Nebula contains at least 2000 newborn stars with many still forming.
