The Trapezium in the Orion Nebula (M42)

Posted by skyphotographer

Most photos of m42 burn out the trapezium center to view nebulosity, and most photos of the trapezium cluster fail to show much detail in the nebulosity. Using Carl Zambuto magnificent mirror, excellent contrast is obtained to view both the trapezium and great detail in the heart of this star-forming region. Dust globules and knots are condensing to new star system.
Single 800iso 15-second image using Canon T3i on 14.5" Zambuto Mirror Starmaster Dobsonian with Skycommander Goto Tracking. Minor processing of RAW image in Canon Digital Photo Professional, followed by conversion to TIFF and exif-JPEG.
