Description

The Orion Nebula (Messier 42) looks amazing no matter how you look at it. Located south of Orion's belt in the constellation of the same name, it is visually impressive through a pair of binoculars or any size telescope, appears stunning in wide field astrophotography using a DSLR and lens, and looks absolutely incredible in images taken with a telescope. It is one of the brightest nebulae, and visible to the naked eye in the night sky.
