The Trapezium

APOD image October 6, 2012
This is the finest and most dramatic image I have ever seen of the Trapezium at the heart of Orion (click here to see the original APOD image in all its glory).

The mosaic image data is taken from Hubble Space Telescope Legacy Archive. The data was processed by astrophotographer Robert Gendler.

Gendler's website contains impressive photo galleries and also technical articles how to use Adobe Photoshop to create such stunning photos from astronomical images.
