4.1.5 Photographing Orion
Before we go on to consider the Solar System in greater detail, have you taken your weekly photograph of Orion yet?
If possible take a picture at the same time from the same spot each week. Remember to include your marker point (chimney pot, tree branch, etc.) in the image, so that they can be compared from week to week. Fingers crossed that it is clear and not cloudy wherever you are!
Don’t forget that you can consult Monica’s advice on taking photos of Orion.
Once you have taken the picture, compare it to the others you have taken during the course. Did you notice that Orion had moved from your image last week? Compare it to the first image you took. Has Orion moved since then?
If you’ve enjoyed photographing Orion, you could continue, maybe monthly, to see how Orion moves in the sky over the course of the year.
