This is a 20 minute exposure with a 24mm lens @ f/5.6 on a Mamiya back loaded with Kodak E200 pushed to ISO 1600.
Here is the winter sky, and the winter Milky Way from Puppis to Perseus. Note the abundance of glowing red hydrogen; particularly prominent is the California Nebula (NGC 1499) in Perseus at upper right. Saturn is being stung by the bees of the Beehive (M44) in Cancer at left.
