NGC 1976 – Orion Nebula

M42, NGC 1976

Distance: 1344ly

The Orion Nebula is a large bright nebula located in Orion’s sword. It is naked eye visible and is an impressive sight with binoculars even in urban skies. It’s beautiful and bright and worth revisiting often. I’ve mostly focused on narrow views of the Trapezium, a cluster of stars in the core. I’d like to get better wide field shots once I have a better telescope for them.
