Constellations: Orion (Shooting the Moon)

Part of a series of images that use astronomical data to construct landscapes with starry skies. Every dot in the sky is a real star!

This one shows the hunter Orion (as can be seen from latitude 66°N) aiming at the moon. Taurus can be seen above Orion's bow, and the head of Cetus (or tail, depending on your interpretation) just above the horizon to the East of the moon.

The image includes stars of magnitude 10 or brighter, and therefore contains many stars that are not visible to the naked eye and which can only usually be seen through binoculars or a telescope. The Etsy Page includes some closeups.
