Explanation from Wikipedia: The Orion Nebula (also known as Messier 42, M42, or NGC 1976) is a diffuse nebula situated in the Milky Way, being south of Orion's Belt in the constellation of Orion. It is one of the brightest nebulae, and is visible to the naked eye in the night sky. M42 is located at a distance of 1,344 ± 20 light years and is the closest region of massive star formation to Earth. The M42 nebula is estimated to be 24 light years across. It has a mass of about 2000 times the mass of the Sun. Older texts frequently refer to the Orion Nebula as the Great Nebula in Orion or the Great Orion Nebula.

This picture is taken with a 150mm f:7 Apochromatic refracting telescope. A lot of different pictures with different exposure times from 5sec up to 15min were taken and added to a composite with a total exposure time of around 45 minutes.

this is a seriously fantastic capture.I love the detail you have managed to record in the trapezium. Its easy to blow that out so I guess this is why the differing exposure times. My highest compliments to you.
