Orion's Belt and Sword

This photo is from my first time using Fuji Provia 400F 35mm slide film. This is the full frame; everything just fit! Image processing was rudimentary. There is more to be revealed in this image with better processing. For example, the edge of Barnard's Loop in the lower left corner would be revealed better.

_Imager: Olympus OM-1, Fuji Provia 400F 35mm slide film, scanned at 4,032 x 2,688 (10.8 MP). _Lens: Sun 300mm f/4.5 @ f/5.6. _Exposure: Single, 45 minutes. _Guider: Manually guided using 80mm f/5 guidescope. _Date: Nov 14, 2004. _Location: Near Ayton, Ontario, Canada.
