The Orion Molecular Cloud Complex rises over a tent pitched in the Himalayas above Darjeeling, whose city lights can be seen in the background. The imager captured each of the two sky panels of this vertical panorama with a modified Canon 700D, a 28mm f/1.4 lens, and 14 one-minute frames at ISO 1600.
