The Arrow and Fox in the Deep Dark Rift

Via Flickr:
Located within the "bend" in the Great Rift lies Vulpecula, the fox and Sagitta, the arrow.

This image features many of the prominent dark intricacies that compose the Great Rift as is meanders through the backbone of night.

At center, Collinder 399, Brocchi's cluster, often called the Coathangar, floats in the darkness of the rift on a summer's evening.


  1. Woah! What was your film of choice and exposure time / fstop?

  2. Thanks, I used Konica Centuria Pro 400 film. A Pentax 67 with 200mm f/4 SMC Takumar @ f/5.6 and 50 minutes exposure. The negative was scanned on an Epson V600 scanner. Processing done in Photoshop.
