Trapezium: Centre of the Orion Nebula
The Trapezium is the central portion of the Orion Nebula (M42). This is a 30 x 20 seconds stack of images (total 10 minutes of exposure. Imaging this bright region of M42 and managing to keep the central 4 bright stars seperated is quite complex. Imaged at my Mudgee property "Bundaleer" on 30/12/2010. One of only 2 images for the whole of 2010. Celestron GPS11 f3.3 focal reducer, EQ mode, Auto Guided, Meade DSI IIIc, Photoshop.
