Orion is a beautiful constellation, it's very good for astrophotography. Orion emission nebula (M42), M43, Horsehead dark nebula, M78, Barnard's loop are the best nebula in this constellation.
Barnard's loop is very dim and photography from that is very hard; But in this photo you can see the Barnard's loop.
Orion constellation is near the Taurus and Canis Majur constellation.
