Constellation of Orion with Pleiades

Constellation of Orion with Pleaides, setting in a field of stars.Const

I have been enjoying setting aside a little more time for myself to take astrophotography around all the other busy things in my life like my dayjob, workshops, and building observatories! This image of the constellation of Orion setting in the north-west late one night is such a result.

Pleiades is extremely low on the western horizon, Taurus with the bright yellow/orange star Aldebaran is above Pleiades and then above that the constellation of Orion. The fainter northern Milky Way is visible to the right of Orion as the stream of stars down the image. Silhouette of gumtrees complete the image.
