First, to the moderators, if this is inappropriate for EAA, then you can delete it. I'm a moderator at a couple of sites, so I know what your job entails.
Anyway, this is my present hobby, astrophotography. This image is the Orion Nebula, located, as if you didn't know, in the constellation Orion. I'm sure that the vast majority know the constellation. It is up right now about 2 hours after dark. The nebula lies about 1350 light years distant and is the closest star birthing region to Earth. The image is composed of mostly hydrogen gas, the redish stuff, and dust and other gases. It was taken with a TEC140 apochromatic refractor. The camera is a QHY8 Pro CCD one shot color camera. It's a stack of 16 eight minute exposures that are registered and stacked in a software program designed for astrophotography and then the details are brought out in Photoshop CS5. To the left is another object called The Running Man Nebula.
