Another view of the stunning Orion Nebula using an alternative range of filters to capture different wavelengths of light.
This Nebula is approx. 1,400 light years away, meaning that the light took 1,400 years to reach my camera, Earth time. The object is at least 20 light years across, making it a massive nebula. Objects such as this are star forming regions, where new stars are being created from the ionized gasses, plasma heat and dust. Contained within the structure are small clusters of stars recently born from within the nebula itself.
I used narrowband filters to capture the emission of certain ionised gases, Hydrogen Alpha, Oxygen III and Sulphur II.
