The Orion and Running Man Nebula

First processed pictures from the Esprit 120ED. This is the Orion and Running Man nebula found in the constellation Orion, probably one of the most photographed nebula in the sky and a good starting point with the new scope. Objects in this view include M42 (Orion Nebula), M43 (de Mairan’s Nebula), NGC 1977 (The Running Man Nebula), NGC 1975 and NGC 1973. If a labeled version would help, please let me know and I’d be more than happy to create one.
