Orion Nebula (M42)

Orion Nebula  (M42)
Grabbed this between showers last night. Came out fairly well considering the wind that was blowing.
Single 90 sec shot with just the camera lense, at 100mm focal length. ISO 1600, f5.6.
The Orion nebula is easily visible with binoculars- without, if you are in a dark place. It's at the middle of his sword (some say club),which is below the three belt stars, that nearly everyone knows.
