Looks a lot like M42.... Well, your right, it is part of
the Great Orion Nebula. M42 is the large part, with the
Trapezium, M43 is the small, part - Looks like the head/eye
section. Formally, it is the De Mairan's Nebula. It is
separated from the other section by a dust lane, which you cansee well
on this image.
I thought a copy of a black and white image was appropriate here.
