      Description

      Messier 42 - The Orion Nebula - Probably the most photographed object of the night sky in our latitudes among astrophotographers.

      Of course I have to take that with me too. I had already tried it when I started the hobby in 2018 and that wasn't bad at all.

      But my goal was also to take the Dust around Orion.

      I think I succeeded quite well :-)
