Orion Nebula

October, 2015

Graduate Student and Acting Director of the Emera Astronomy Center, Scott Mitchell, took this photo recently of the Great Orion Nebula. The picture was taken using four 5-minute exposures through clear, red, blue and green filters on our state-of-the-art, research grade telescope. This image gives us a wonderful view of the nebula, which is over 1,000 light years away from Earth.
