This image shows a large section of the Constellation of Orion, centred on the Great Orion Nebula and also shows Barnard’s Loop surrounding Orion. The wide colour range of stars in the area hilighted within this image.
From the Southern Hemisphere Orion (and other constellations) appear “up side down” as appeared from the Northern Hemisphere. This has given the constellation of Orion a nickname “the saucepan”. You may be able to make out the shape, with the Great Orion Nebula in the handle of the saucepan. This image shows Orion as appearing in the Southern Hemisphere.
For those astronomically minded people, prints of this image clearly feature Barnards Loop, a ring of red nebulosity surrounding the constellaiton.
