M42, The Great Orion Nebula

Two images this page

Great Orion Nebula, about 1650 light years distant. This is the brightest nebula in the Northern Sky, and it's the nearest star-forming region. My first attempt at color. Three ST7 900s images with the C5; one each in Red, Green and Blue. Registration and color processing done in Photoshop.
