This image was taken in early January 2011 near the beginning of a roll of Kodak Gold 200. Such as film photography is, the roll was recently completed and processed.
Two frames (vertically oriented) were exposed and combined in Autostitch. Flat fielding was done with PixInsight using DBE (Dynamic Background Extraction). Curves and levels were adjusted in Photoshop.
Pentax Spotmatic II 300mm f/4 SMC Takumar @ f/4 30 minutes exposure.
High clouds bloated the bright stars.
