Contemplating the Orion Nebula from Earth

It is amazing what a night sky can change if we look at it from a place with hardly any air or light pollution. For example, protected by UNESCO and the International Astronomical Union, the Starlight initiative accredits places that are committed to maintaining a sky without light pollution.

If you also contemplate the sky through a telescope or a camera, then we can still take more spectacular details. Almost as if we were in the middle of a chapter of the series Cosmos. Proof of this is the video that heads this post: M42: Live View Optical Zoom, which zooms in on the Orion Nebula, one of the brightest nebulae that exist, and can be observed with the naked eye over the night sky. Therefore, although it seems that we are in the middle of outer space, what we see is simply registered from Sierra Nevada with a Canon 5D Mark II, a Canon 450D modified for astronomical photography, a Sigma 50-500 mm APO lens automated by the author , a Canon EF x2 teleconvet, and a Meade LX80 mount.
