Orion, my constant and favorite companion in solitude! There are 3 stars that form the dagger of which the middle star forms the Orion nebula. I had seen it thru a refracting telescope, though the level of magnification left a lot 2 be desired. I once also used an old magnifying glass as the objective lens and a camera lens as the eyepiece to see the nebula. It worked but holding my quivering hands steady was nearly impossible. Halcyon school years they were!
