Description

I recently shot the Orion Nebula in the Hubble palette and really liked the result. I also love looking at the starless versions of various nebulas that are posted here. So, I did some edits to the color and pulled the stars out in PixInsight. I hope you enjoy my version of the great Orion Nebula with no stars.

Happy New Year!
