Orion

Well...it was too windy and there were too many clouds this week to take the photo I had originally planned...so I improvised. Here is Orion.

Taken with my XT and Tamron 28-75 at 44mm f/2.8 SS 2sec.

I think this is a great shot. I'm not a constellation expert, so I'm not sure if you have the whole thing, but it looks like you do. The only thing that I personally know for sure belongs to Orion is his belt, I guess I need to read up a bit. Anyway, I think you did a good job with filling the frame with the whole constellation. I wonder how many attempts this took you. I know when I have tried this, looking through your viewfinder it is hard to see the stars, it is just too dark. So getting the framing right can be a challenge. Also the length of the exposure is a challenge too, if you have too long of an exposure the stars will move on you and you start getting streaks. Well done, astrophotography is a challenging area, but it can produce some excellent images.

I don't know anything about taking pictures of stars and night time skies, just what Travis has told me. I guess it is pretty good. It does make we want to get out there and give it a try...maybe when it gets warmer.

Aaaah, good old Orion. I always can find him in the sky since he's pretty much the only constellation I can recognize immediately. Interesting take on the theme. Not a bad picture at all. Could have been fun to do a really long exposure to get the streaks from the Earth's movement in the stars. Very Happy

Nice job...I also would have loved to see the streaks of the stars from the earth's movement.

Just like the rest of the replies, I know very little about the constalation. Anyways I thought it was a great idea! The stars really stand out. Generally speaking I thought it was a above average picture! Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven
