25 December 2019: Orion snapshots

After Christmas’ dinner, it turned out the sky was clear. I was fully unprepared obviously being Christmas & all, so I quickly put the Nikon D750 / 135mm on th emount to take some snapshots. It took a while before Orion cleared my large wallnut tree that pretty much blocks the sky south to east.
