In the December 2012 issue of Astronomy, C. Robert O’Dell wrote a story named “How the Orion Nebula works.” The story contained lots of graphics and images from professional telescopes but only one from an amateur astronomer. As you might imagine, our files contain numerous images of this object taken by hobbyists.
Here are eight more great ones for your viewing pleasure. Each one lists the imaging details followed by who took it. Enjoy!
