Something a little different today. On the night of the last lunar eclipse I took the opportunity to do a little stargazing, and while I was at it I also trained the camera towards the stars. This is the first of two images that I want to share from that session. Orion is one of the more recognizable constellations in the northern hemisphere, showing itself at night in the winter months. The bright fat blob in the lower half is the well-known nebula. I was rather happy that at full size the nebula shows up well.
