Constellation shots January 29th

I did a series of constellation shots from 1900 to 1930 GMT. The eastern sky was covered by cloud but the area surrounding Orion seemed quite promising, so I decided to concentrate there. In the first shot, Lepus and Canis Minor are also visible.

Although I couldn’t see the other stars in Canis Major (apart from Sirius) the main ones came out in the photo, even though it was low in the sky.

I also took a second shot of Orion, which I thought was better.
The Gemini shot showed the constellation at a different angle from what we see in the UK.
