Running Man Nebula and Orion

Via Wikipedia

“This object was named ‘The Running Man Nebula’ by Texas Astronomical Society member Jason Ware. Approximately 20 years ago his down stairs neighbor looked at the object and said it looked like a running man. He brought this up a TAS club meeting and the name stuck. Now widely accepted as ‘The Running Man’.”

The Running Man Nebula can be found at the top of this image, just above the Orion Nebula. A total of 42 H-Alpha images were taken with the Takahashi FSQ-106FSQEDX IV telescope and stacked. There were 20 ten second exposures, 20 sixty second exposures, and 6 thirty minute exposures.
