The Orion constellation is prominent in our winter skies and an area of the sky that is chock full of colourful nebulae, galaxies, clusters and stars. Nebulae with such colourful names as The Cosmic Bat, Horsehead, The Running Man, Casper the Friendly Ghost and the Witchhead. This picture we took earlier this week with a standard DSLR camera shows what’s hiding from the naked eye but which can be seen on one of our excursions through our telescope or by using a camera. Happy stargazing!
