A Study of Orion

Hi All, I decided to use my ToUCam for splitting some double stars in Orion. I also managed to collect some more data for my previous M42 image with the Canon S5IS (http://www.iceinspace.com.au/forum/s...ad.php?t=53844)
Then I put it all together into this little piece which I think didn't come out too bad after all.

Hope you enjoy!

Thanks for that. It's a novel presentation and an informative one. Not just a pretty picture.

The best southern double stars?

Thanks everyone, it sure was fun to make. Could be interesting to do a kind of poster with all of the highlights in Orion, or any constellation really.

Apropos double stars, which do you guys consider to be the best double stars visible from the southern hemisphere?
