Canon Rebel XTi (Hutech modified) with a 135mm Nikkor lens @ f/4; 1 minute exposure at ISO 400.
I wanted to go deep in the vicinity of Venus in Sagittarius on the night Venus passed less than 2 degrees SSW of the big, bright globular cluster M22. It is amazing just how deep a lens can go at f/4 at ISO 400. Various objects are labelled.
