Summary Author: Paolo Palma

Over the past two years, I have collected astrophotography of all stars up to magnitude 5+ visible from my site in Naples, Italy using a 18-inch Dobsonian telescope and a smartphone. In total, this image collection is approximately 1300 photos. The image above shows a collage of all 175 stars of Orion and Taurus constellations up to magnitude +5.5. To show each star in a new light, I have put every photo out of focus to best emphasis their individual nuances and unique colors.
