The Night Sky - Orion
Darrell Heath with the UALR College of Science explores the constellation of Orion on this episode of The Night Sky. You'll learn about Orion's origins, when and where to see the constellation, and the various stars forming the celestial hunter.
Orion the Hunter (Advanced) - Legends, pattern, celestial objects
Orion is one of the most easily recognizable constellations in the winter sky. If you can learn how to find this constellation, you can easily navigate your way to all the other star patterns in the winter sky.

The True Shape of Orion
Constellations are drawn as stick figures connecting bright stars in the sky. This two-dimensional representation gives the impression that the stars are all at the same distance. In addition, the idea of a "bright star" can be misleading, as the apparent brightness we see depends upon both the star's intrinsic brightness and its distance from Earth. This scientific visualization addresses both of these issues by viewing the Orion constellation from a three-dimensional perspective. The true space distribution of the constellation as well as how stellar brightness changes with viewing position is revealed by circling around the stars.
The camera begins with a pan across the sky to Orion. The lines of the 2D stick figure constellation are drawn in. As the camera slowly begins to circle around the centroid of the stars, the stick figure quickly breaks into a long, extended 3D structure. The camera backs up to keep the entire figure onscreen for the complete circle. At the end of the circle, the camera pushes forward to finish at the location of the Earth/Sun (to avoid an obvious distraction, the Sun is not included in the visualization).
During that final camera push, notice how Sirius grows in apparent brightness (bottom of frame, just left of center). While Sirius is the brightest star in our night sky, a major contribution of its apparent brightness comes from its proximity to the Sun.

The future of the Orion constellation
This video reveals how our view of the Orion constellation will evolve over the next 450 000 years.
Amid a myriad of drifting stars, the shape of Orion as defined by its brightest stars is slowly rearranged into a new pattern as time goes by.
The portion of the sky depicted in the video measures 40 x 20º – as a comparison, the diameter of the full Moon in the sky is about half a degree.
The video is based on data from ESA's Gaia and Hipparcos satellites, as well as additional information from ground-based observations.

The Deepest Ever Look into Orion Nebula : Amazing HD views
Amazing astronomy video showing ESO’s HAWK-I infrared instrument on the Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile which has been used to peer deeper into the heart of Orion Nebula than ever before.
The spectacular picture reveals about ten times as many brown dwarfs and isolated planetary-mass objects than were previously known.
This discovery poses challenges for the widely accepted scenario for Orion’s star formation history.
An international team has made use of the power of the HAWK-I infrared instrument on ESO’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) to produce the deepest and most comprehensive view of the Orion Nebula  to date. Not only has this led to an image of spectacular beauty, but it has revealed a great abundance of faint brown dwarfs and isolated planetary-mass objects. The very presence of these low-mass bodies provides an exciting insight into the history of star formation within the nebula itself.

Taking Photos of The Orion Nebula & Other Astronomical Features
Without spending thousands of dollars on a telescope you can take photos of astronomical targets using consumer photography hardware. It's even possible to take pictures of the moon with a pair of binoculars and a cellphone camera.
Given a decent point and shoot camera with a 10x zoom, decent aperture and a manual exposure mode you can take images of the Orion Nebula with ease, I've previous used a Cannon Powershot.
The image processing software I use is available free from here, there are newer alternatives too.
This is the camera I show at the start, it's not cheap, but it's certainly not Pro Gear.
The Telescope mount I have is the Orion Skyview Pro
The actual telescope is no longer available from Orion, it's a 100mm f/6 the nearest equivalents would be the 120mm f5 (bigger aperture)
Or their ED 80mm F/7.5 (lower chromatic aberration)
DSLR Astrophotography - Let's Photograph the Orion Nebula
In this DSLR Astrophotography video, I attempt to photograph a beautiful deep-sky object from the Astro backyard!
Learn More about the Orion Nebula: https://astrobackyard.com/orion-nebula
The Orion Nebula and the Running Man Nebula are located in the constellation Orion, and is the perfect target for my DSLR and telescope.
We'll also take a look at a new tool to help focus your camera through a telescope. The Bahtinov mask is designed for visual and photographic use, and can help you achieve perfect focus on your deep-sky object.
Watch as I install the Bahtinov mask on my wide-field refractor telescope for the first time. I share my thoughts on how it works, and whether it is right for your astrophotography setup or not.
After a few clouds and some focusing hiccups, I finally get up and running on the Orion Nebula. Stay tuned to the end of the video for my results.
Photographing and Processing the Constellation Orion: Image Stacking and LRGB Processing
In this tutorial we talk about photographing the constellation Orion, stacking multiple astrophotography exposures to reduce noise and enhancing nebulosity with the LRGB Processing method using Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom.
Orion Nebula HDR Tutorial (Fix the Bright Core in Photoshop)
Orion Nebula HDR Photoshop Tutorial
To produce an astrophotography image of the Orion Nebula with a high dynamic range, it is best to blend a set of varying exposure lengths together.
In this video, I combine an image set of 3-minute exposures (stacked) at ISO 800, with a set of 10-second exposures. This helps to reveal the subtle details of the bright core of the Orion Nebula.

All of the Constellations in HD
Stellarium - shows you everything, like Google Earth. You will see more than 116 million stars, all constellations, nebulas, all planets+their satellites, artificial satellites and meteor showers, all of these are precisely shown, orbits and positions are updated every 72 hours (or you can adjust it) and everything is going on in the real time, based on your system time. Program can work offline and it's free, download it and you will have a lot of fun!
Now exactly what I'm showing here, is a lot of stuff, I can say that no words are needed, you just switch video to full screen, make it 720p and enjoy the show! Name of the constellations, stars, planets are given and everything is pretty clear overall:)
P.S. This program takes few resources, so almost any machine can use this program without lagging.

Orion - a brief tour
Orion is a classic constellation. From ancient egypt to the ancient greeks to the vikings - Orion has been both a point of reference and of myth.
When you next look up at the night sky in autumn and winter, see if you cannot find Orion - and try and grasp what beuty and wonders you are really looking at. It is so much more than tiny spekcs of twinkling lights. In this video I'm trying to give a brief description of some of what you would be looking at. It is my hope that it will spark some interrest.
The night sky is so much more interresting when you know something about what you're looking at.

ORION Astrophotography Grand Tour: Constellation Series S01E01
Photographing the Orion Constellation and revealing it's hidden features! Covered in this episode are Star names and why they are mostly Arabic. Pop culture references to star names or other objects. Star death and re-birth all in one spot.
Thanks for watching! I plan on this video being the first in a series highlighting all of the best sights, lore, wonders, and history related to each constellation in the night sky, using very little or no stock footage or images, but instead pictures I captured in my backyard or a few miles down the road with my hand remote setup, or even while on vacation or wandering in the wilderness. So let's begin with one of my favorites, Orion!
Orion is an easy constellation to spot in the January sky. If you are out watching the January 2018 Total Lunar Eclipse, you'll find Orion just a glimpse away!
When special cameras and a tracking mount are used, famous objects will appear in your photo, The Great Orion Nebula, The Horse head nebula and Flame nebula. The Witchhead nebula, and Barnard's loop. All are remnants of great supernova explosions. Betelgeuse and Rigel may someday end their lives in a similar fate. Future earthlings may see a totally different Orion than we do!
