    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 :-)
