Thanks for this pic. I am quite a newbie at astronomy, and can only identify some planets and simple constellations.

However, I have been practicing quite a bit w.r.t astrophotography, and have been pushing the ISO limits of the cameras I own to get the perfect shot.

I was into star trails first, but then I discovered that with wide open aperture, and high ISO, you can actually get some real nice star shots!
