This is a 3 minute exposure with a Canon Rebel XTi (Hutech modified) and a 24mm Nikkor lens @ f/4 and a Tiffen Fog2 filter at ISO 800.
After being reminded of the alignment of Mars with Pollux and Castor in Gemini, I made this image after photographing Mercury and the Pleiades. The glow in the bottom right of the pic is from the zodiacal light.
