Andy took this picture of M42, the Orion Nebula

Nice. Now how many hours did it take to get this shot?
And where was it shot from? Not downtown Toronto, I wouldn’t think..

Here is a
Hubble shot of M42
for reference (although I’m not sure of the scale!).

friends, science.

    It was in fact taken by jwr and I at the Forks of the Credit conservation area. It took ~2 minutes with an 8″ telescope, but I can’t answer for sure. Jeff wrote down the data but never got around to telling me.
