Paint flecks on black cardboard.

Looks awesome. How much light pollution in the area you’re in?

Amazing pic! Always reminds me of how utterly insignificant we actually are when looking at the size of the universe. Have any more to share?

If anyone is interested in how I process the lights, with darks, flats and bias frames I can do a little writeup on how to take and process wide angle shots with a camera and tripod.

Here is the astrometry detail for the image:

If and when I sort out my WISP....neverending battle with both AH and Axxess and pathetic speeds, esp uploads which time out continually.
