The Orion Nebula is the most famous among amateur astronomers, as it is the brightest from our perspective. During the winter months, it is visible from dusk and throughout the night.
This astrophotography is made with an 8-inch Ritchey Chretien telescope. This optical design is the same as the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). Similarly, the information to make this astrophotography was obtained from 2 places, Mucuyché and Mérida Yucatán, Mexico. This is because I am forced to move my equipment to dark skies to be able to capture RGB information, that is to Mucuyché, and on the other hand, from the city where I live, in Mérida, where I can capture information with the use of narrow band filters (Ha).
