Orion may be one of the most spectacular regions of space we can see from Earth and the wider area around the famous M42 nebula is a popular target for astrophotographers of all levels and even for viewing through binoculars or modest telescopes due to it’s apparent brightness. With deeper exposures like this one, the dust and gas feeding this star-factory is revealed as a dense flowing cascade illuminated and ionised by the surrounding clusters of stars.
