Nebula M42 - 01 November 2005

This nebula is very beautiful. I tried to make a photo by longer focal length. Result likes me very much.

I have tried pointation with camera lens (300mm focal length included with teleconvertor). That optical configuration used for pointation is enough. After finishing other pictures I took a picture of nebula in Orion. After few shots I was out of breath. Simply beauty. I am sure it is not last picture of this area, because this was only first attempt - I have waited for this photo several years and it has done at last.
