The region around Antares in the constellation Scorpion belongs to one of the most colorful areas in the sky. Beside many dark nebulaes there are weak reddish emission nebulaes as well as blueish and yellowish reflection nebulaes.

Medium resolution with a comparison to the size of the full moon and the identification of the brighter nebulosity regions.

 Constellations
Orion the Hunter

The Orion belongs to the most prominent constellations of the sky and dominates the winter sky with seven bright stars. Beside the well known objects like the Great Orion Nebula (M 42), the Horsehead Nebula (B 33) and the Flame Nebula (NGC 2024) there are many weaker emission- dark- and reflection nebulaes throughout the constellation. The largest nebula is called Barnard's Loop, which probable represents an old supernova remnant.
