M42 - Orion Nebula

The Orion nebula is actually a winter object, but as one of the most commonly known nebula, I had to try. It is, according to nearly all source, one of the most beautiful objects the night sky has to offer. The picture taken suffers from really bad alignment and missing depth. But it will be revisited several time come winter. In the meantime, have a look at Bernhard Hubls picture [1]
