A comparison of the Most Detailed Image Ever Taken and First Image of Orion Nebula

With time we are manufacturing more useful and advanced technologies. The left side in the image below is the first ever photograph of Orion, which was captured back in 1880 by astronomer Henry Draper and on the right side is an image taken by Andrew Symes in 2013 on his iPhone. The image taken by Henry Draper is a result of 50 minutes of exposure time. On the other hand Symes only needed just a few seconds to capture the Orion nebula. You can see the image below:

The most comprehensive image of Orion in fact comes from 2012. The image comprises a billion pixels at full resolution and exposes about 3,000 stars. It was composed by means of data obtained from the Hubble Space Telescope’s Advanced Camera for Surveys and the European Southern Observatory’s La Silla 2.2 meter telescope.
