Fletcher Photos - Orion & Horsehead Nebulae
"The Orion & Horsehead Nebulae"

Tri-color on Technical Pan film - 8" f/1.5 Schmidt camera/telescope

photo by Bill and Sally Fletcher

- These two beautiful nebulae are both in the constellation Orion. This photo, shot with a very wide field Schmidt Camera/Telescope, encompasses a 6.5 degree field so both objects can appear in the same photo.

On a dark night, away from city lights, The Orion Nebula (on the right) is large enough to be seen as a "fuzzy" star without the aid of a telescope. With binoculars some structural detail can be seen. Through a large or small telescope, it is a wonder to behold! -
