Equipment
I used a Hutech modified Canon Digital Rebel XTi Camera with a Sigma 30mm lens on a Takahashi EM-10 equatorial mount. The shot is a composite of 20 images that are each 5 minutes long taken at ISO400 f/4.0. Stacking of the images was done in ImagesPlus 2.80 software and final processing in Adobe Photoshop CS2.
