Orion at 180mmThis is the Orion belt area shot with a 180mm telephoto lens. The 3 belt stars are in the middle-top of the frame. Under the left-most belt star you can barely make out the Horsehead Nebula. To the left of the same star is the Flame Nebula. Near the center-bottom you can see M42, the Great Nebula in Orion. Above it , you can easily make out the blue reflection nebula NGC1977. Part of Barnard's Loop is visible on the top left, and there's a lot of red nebulosity in the entire frame.Davis Mountains, TX, November 22, 2000
