I have invited Astronomers and Astrophotographers to showcase their beautiful photographs of my stars. During the 2021 winter stargazing season I have seen so many fabulous pictures of my Constellation that I am curating a special Online Collection – featuring each Astronomer and their chosen Orion picture. The Pleiades – those lovely Seven Sisters – also welcome!
Thanks to all!

Parag The Great nebula (M42) from Orion. About 25 minutes of exposure using WO Zenithstar 61 and Nikon Z6.
Peter Lewis A unique perspective of a familiar star – Betelgeuse. After stabilising, stacking, cropping & filtering 2500+ frames, it turned out like this. Betelgeuse is a giant reddish ball of gas on fire, c640 light years away. Looks quite pretty for a mobile phone through an 8″ scope! 2/4.
Peter Lewis I always love a ‘thru the scope’ view!
