SH2-254 - Nebula in Orion
Sh2-254 - Nebulae in Orion
  • Description: An interesting group of nebula in Orion but even with 2.5 hours of exposure this group still seems weak. The left-most nebula is IC2162, next is Sh2-256 and the really small one below that is Sh2-257. The largest of the three is Sh2-254. All are a challenge visually.
