Orion Nebula

Orion Nebula

It's a long while since I shot the night sky and as it was a clear night, I dusted down my Sky Watcher Star Adventurer & took this two minute exposure of the Orion Nebula. I love the colours in this very easy to find nebula, directly below the three star belt of the constellation Orion [Alnitak, Alnilam and Mintaka]. Image details: 2 minute exposure, F10, ISO 2000, Canon 60Da, 200mm & 2x converter [640mm total length with camera crop factor]. This is also a full image with no crop.

I reduced the blacks & noise & increased clarity in Lightroom.

Image taken 15th Jan 2016.
