Orion Constellation

Orion Constellation

This was my first time shooting Orion. I shot it in 15 degree F weather using a gorillapod camera mount on my front porch to get the angle for the shot. The moon was out that night and I had the light pollution of street lights to contend with. I am surprised it came out so well with some minor image editing. Camera settings: 15 second open shutter/delay, set to infinite.

You can see Orion with the naked eye even without a camera. Thank you for this pic, it was helpful..I have looked overhead and seen this constellation on clear nights here in Tampa.
