M42 The Great Orion Nebula

The Orion Nebula is a diffuse nebula situated in the Milky Way, being south of Orion's Belt in the constellation of Orion. It is one of the brightest nebulae, and is visible to the naked eye in the night sky.


Since we have moved to northern Arizona, I have been able to enjoy the night sky right from our backyard due to low light pollution, hence the desire to learn Digital Astrophotography.


I have a lot to learn about astrophotography and how to properly take astronomical images with the right equipment, which I will purchase soon.


Thank you for your comments.


Have a Happy New Year!!
