The Massive Orion Nebula

I captured this shot of the Orion Nebula, the closest star forming region to the Solar System. Residing at 1,500 light years distant, the nebula is 25 light years in diameter. I shot this at Frosty Drew Observatory in Charlestown, Rhode Island, USA while showing off differences between the camera and visible observation.
