A composite I put together to show what's hiding in the constellation Orion. The middle panel is a short exposure which roughly corresponds with the number of stars that can be seen from a truly dark site. The right hand panel has an hour of H-alpha data blended in in an attempt to show the sheer scale of Barnard's Loop and the Angelfish Nebula in the sky, although it's not possible to do it justice in a photo.

I also put together a version to support the CPRE 2021 star count.
