Deep View Of Orion

Except for my mosaic this is my widest and probably deepest view ever of The Great Orion Nebula combining data captured from my Bortle 4.0 sky and amateur backyard observatory in Fremont, Michigan from 2010 through to 2014 using QHY9 and QHY11 Mono CCD’s, 5 inch TMB 130, 3.6″ TMB92 refractor and Takahashi E180 Astrograph. Collected using LRGB + H-A filters and covering 4.08 x 2.91 degrees of sky. The constellation of Orion is home to many treasures, including the Orion Nebula seen here. A small part of the immense Orion Molecular Cloud, M42 is perhaps the most studied extra-solar object in the sky. intricate and picturesque filaments of dust.
