The Orion Nebula as seen from my back garden

playing around with the camera tonight and though its a bit noisy I was really excited to capture this wonder of nature . Thinking that stars are being born there and it is barely visible to the human eye... really does make one feel very small and insignificant
I would have been tucked up in bed at that time....and missed such a fantastic view. Looking at your info, shocked you only had a 3 second exposure, thought you would need much longer than that. It's a really good shot.

@janemartin thank you , yes it surprised me too. Any longer exposure and u was getting very bad star trails. I might try with a 300mm prime the next clear sky we get (that should be around June 2020 lol) . it was a lot of fun playing out at that time of night , would love to go somewhere dark but think I'd be a bit freaked out on my own .

It's always good to feel small, if you ask me. Reminds you of the important things. I really like this photo. Fav
