Kodak Pro 400 PPF - 6 x 7 cm Pentax medium format camera w/90mm lens
- This photo of Leo shows, enlarged in their true color, the main "naked eye" stars that make up the shape of the Lion. This is a natural photographic technique with the various effects created during a single exposure of the film.
The brightest star in this constellation is the blue-white star at Leo's "elbow", Regulus (which means The Little King). The star Denebola (meaning tail) is the second brightest.
The stars of the night sky have been divided and mapped since ancient times. With this mapping the imaginative shapes and legends of the constellations were created.
