Most of the Orion constellation or asterism as seen at Calstar 2013. This was taken late at night on one of the last evenings.

Pentax 67 camera using the SMC Pentax 6X7 165mm f/2.8 lens on E200 slide film. Exposure of 60 minutes at f4. Film pushed one stop in processing. Haze filter used to control a little glow.

Note the field rotation on the edges of the frame indicating poor polar alignment. When I do this again, I'll have to take more care in setting up the mount.

The camera was piggybacked on the G11 on top of the SV4 and all guided by Maxim driving the SSAG on an SV70ED.

Scanned using the Epson V700 at maximum settings, making huge files (over 800 mb each) giving my computer a real challenge with processing them. Color balance was achieved in scan. LR5 to do some noise control, vignette removal, and curves.
