Here are two shots of the constellation Orion taken with the lens intentionally thrown out of focus. This astrophotography "trick" can be used to clearly reveal star colors. Orion shows a beautiful variety of star colors. From Red Giants to Blue-White "superstars" and red nebulae, Orion has it all. These shots were 30 second fixed tripod shots on Kodak Royal Gold 1000 film. Lens was a 50mm F2.0 Pentax on a K1000 camera.
