Orion Nebula M42
Orion Constellation

A beautiful photo of M42, also known as the Orion nebula, taken by the 4 meter wide telescope at the Kitt Peak National Observatory. Situated in the Milky Way and south of Orion's Belt, it is one of the brightest nebulae, and is visible to the naked eye in the night sky.

The Orion Nebula is one of the most scrutinized and photographed objects in the night sky, and is among the most intensely studied celestial features.[8] The nebula has revealed much about the process of how stars and planetary systems are formed from collapsing clouds of gas and dust. Astronomers have directly observed protoplanetary disks and brown dwarfs within the nebula, intense and turbulent motions of the gas, and the photo-ionizing effects of massive nearby stars in the nebula.

Publisher's Note:
This image source is extremely large and will produce tack-sharp prints at almost any size. For another high resolution Orion image, see Hubble's Composite of the Orion Nebula.

Note: 
Sizes are in inches and these are our defaults. If you require custom border sizes or no border, then please contact us or specify in the comments section at Checkout.

    All images are cropped to fit the selected size within +/- .5". Therefore, some part of the image may not appear in the final print, when comparing to the online thumbnail. This missing part may appear on the sides or the top and bottom. This is a standard printing practice so that the finished product will fit standard frame sizes. This cropping is the default action.

    If you would like uncropped images, tell us by putting a note in the comment section at Checkout. Keep in mind that the uncropped image size will always be smaller than the ordered size.

    The actual sizes of objects in the image may not vary within 1/2" due to printer resizing during the final print imaging on the printers.
