The Orion and Taurus Constellations

The Orion and Taurus constellations taken with a 28mm F/2.8 lens.  The camera used is a Canon XS at ISO 1600 and was mounted on a regular tripod.  I used 3×20 sec exposures combined in IRIS.  Calibration frames were from old data.  Bright Jupiter is visible on the right.  Even with just 20 seconds for exposure, the stars trailed due to the Earth’s rotation. I had to do some star rounding in PS to correct it somewhat.
