Yet another beautiful view of M78 in Orion! Which image do you prefer? This one or the ESO's one below? This image was acquired by the remarkable Anglo-Australian Observatory's 1.2-meter UK Schmidt telescope, hence the wider field than the ESO's M78 picture. This AAO image was made for the Digitized Sky Survey 2 (DSS2).
