Description

Probably M 42 is the most photographed nebula in the whole sky and in the whole world.

You only need a small telescope and a few shots to obtain a good image.

My telescope has a small FOV (18" f4.5), so I have to choose a small area of the nebula. I only have tried to represent true colors and the delicate texture on it.
