This photo of the constellation Scorpius shows how it struggles to get even its head up to a decent altitude as seen from +41 deg N. This is unfortunate, since Scorpius contains such a wealth of objects. Photo taken from my front yard in Oakdale, CT USA. A 30 second fixed tripod shot with a 50mm F2.0 Pentax lens using Kodak Royal Gold 1000 film.
