M44 (the beehive cluster) has a most unusual ancient Chinese name Ji Shi Qi, 'vapor(Qi) of piled-up(Ji) corpses(Shi)', apparently referring to the nebulous quality of the cluster before telescope days.
A pair of 3D images showing Jupiter 'floating' on the background of M44. The left image was taken on 2003/3/26, the right one a month later on 2003/4/26. Both with Nikon coolpix 995, 20 seconds, 4 raw images stacked.
