A Sky of Gold Dust

This image was taken during the summer at Mount Wilson Observatory. It is an area that I found of the Milkyway that was as dense as possible to fill the frame of the Mid range focal length scope that I was using. It is 5.4 hours of exposure over 2 nights.

 

Make sure to look for carbon stars in the image. There's a bunch, and they are very orange/red.
