Runner and hunter

William Ostling from New York City

The Orion Nebula (M42) is perhaps the most famous deep-sky object, pictured here at right, with the Running Man Nebula (NGC 1977) at left. This image represents about 4.3 hours of exposure with a Nikon D800 DSLR and a 600mm f/4 lens on an iOptron GEM28 mount.
