Description

A close-up of the Orion Nebula using a straight-out-of-factory uncollimated Ritchey-Chretien 8" telescope and Nikon D850 camera using ISO 100. 36 exposures of 1 minute each. No dark/flat/bias frames. Surprised how well this turned out and how distinctly visible the 4 trapezium stars are!
