The Orion Complex

My Sigma 105mm f2.8 lens was put through it’s paces this weekend, taking a super widefield of a large portion of Orion focusing on the Belt and Sword.

Visible in this picture is the Orion Nebula as well as Running Man, Horse Head, Flame, & Casper Nebulas. Along the left side, you can see the faint reds of Barnard’s Loop.

It’s amazing what a camera & lens can capture.
