Deepsky Video Orion Nebula by astronomical telescope

Orion Nebula seen through my telescope reflector of 203 mm mirror, camcorder Sony CX 130. Photos and processing in Registax will come later. For now, I uploaded this video on Youtube. I am pleased with Sony CX 130, more than CX105, because it can shoot in the dark stars in a sensitivity greater, at 3 lux (CX105 is 5 lux).

In this video you can see well enough the white cloud of the nebula. Here, the Orion nebula is seen as seen with the naked eye, without additions of processing with different colors and other photoshop programs.

Orion Nebula (also known as Messier 42, M42, or NGC 1976) is a diffuse nebula situated south of Orion's Belt. It is one of the brightest nebulae, and is visible to the naked eye in the night sky. M42 is located at a distance of 1344 ± 20 light years and is the nearest region from Earth, with massive star formation. M42 nebula is estimated to be 24 light years in diameter. It has a mass about 2000 times the Sun's mass. In the old texts is commonly referred to as the Great Nebula in Orion.
