Orion Nebula Telescope Images processed in Registax

These images are processed in Registax 5. I never thought they would get more successful than the video captures presented in another article.

Orion Nebula, or M42, is the nearest group from our Solar System. In these regions, the vast majority of new stars are born in the galaxy. It forms interstellar clouds of molecular gas, that are producing thousands of new stars and then gradually dissipates. Many of these stars are surrounded by disks of dust and gas that have more than twice the diameter of our Solar System. Orion Nebula is located 1,600 light years from us and has 56 trillion km in diameter. It is the second point of light in the sword of Orion the Hunter.

The last images I zoomed the camera near the nebula center. The five main stars, young and massive, are responsible for all light in the Orion nebula. These stars were born with 15 to 30 times the mass of our sun. It is not seen 5 stars in photos, but only 4, and are located at the bottom of the photos. The images are not processed in Photoshop, so the bright colors, that most are used to see this nebula, are missing.
