Here we see the great Orion nébula and several other objets. This complex is located in the contellation of Orion and is eeasily visible to the naked eye. I left the photo film in 2002 and i am now back in, but with digital astrophotography. This is one of my two first photos taken recently. Thank you if you decide to publish.
