The stars of the night sky have been divided and mapped since ancient times. With this mapping the imaginative shapes and legends of the constellations were created.
Orion is a hunter in Greek mythology. The four brightest stars that form a rectangle outline his body. The 3 stars in the middle form his belt. This photo shows deep detail in this region of the sky, such as the Orion Nebula and the Horsehead Nebula (below his belt) and Barnard’s Loop - the huge arc of red-orange nebulosity. A special photographic filter scattered the light of the brightest stars causing them to be enlarged in their true color.
