H-II-regions in Orion
Constellation: Orion

A wider field of views explores more of the region around ζ Orionis. The red horsehead nebula can be viewed in its full scale. The dark enclosure the shape of which the nebula was named after is visible, too.

The extended halos around the blue stars indicate that there was delicate mist during the exposure, but nonetheless add a certain artistic touch to the image.
