The constellation of Orion is rich with impressive nebulas. Of the many interesting details that particularly draws the eye is Barnard's Loop, the bright red circular filament arcing down from the middle.

Other famous nebulas visible include the Witch Head Nebula, the Flame Nebula, and the comparatively small Horsehead Nebula. NASA-APOD, Stanislav Volskiy.

The easy to identify Horsehead and nearby Flame (or Christmas Tree) nebulae are invisible wonders in what many Australians refer-to as the Saucepan, the base of which, is really Orion's Belt. Everything in this picture is invisible to the unaided eye, except for one or two of the brightest stars. Taken with a 4" Takahashi Apo refractor telescope with f3.7 reducer. f.l = 220mm. SBIG 3.2 megapixel cooled ccd camera with Astrodon RB, Ha and OIII filters. Total Exposure Time: 17.3 hours.
