It was far too cold tonight to take the telescopes out, especially on a work night.  But with the sky very clear, I did what I could to capture Orion.

Here is a log of everything I think is in this picture:

  • Betelgeuse
  • Rigel
  • Orion’s Belt
  • The Orion Nebula
  • Bellatrix
  • Saiph
  • Sirius
  • Aldebaran
  • Alhena
  • Alnath, I hope, at the top left
