Two ASAS-SN Views of Orion Nebula

Orion Nebula is one of the favorite object for astrophotographers: if you type "Orion Nebula" in the APOD search form, you can chose from many excellent views of that nearby star-forming region. ASAS-SN image of the Orion Nebula is not in color, as we use only one filter, but we applied two different stretches to our image to highlight different features of that complex region. On the left we highlight the highest surface brightness regions, on the right we accentuate more extended structures with lower surface brightness.
