      really great picture, the stars are so bright. any post processing there?

      I "developed" the raw image with the Canon software, and removed the red "noise" pixels using Adobe Photoshop. Otherwise the image is unaltered in any significant way.

      Awesome night shot! It's hard to believe there are really that many stars up there.

      Seen in the Close to Home pool.

      Thanks! I love doing long exposure night pics, and am hoping SOMEDAY to catch an Aurora. Not likely during solar minimum however.

      ...wow. And a 20d did this? With a little help from its owner, yes...
      Very nice.

      Marvelous! So many stars. It gives me a great feeling.
      I placed your image under an article of my personal weblog. Its about star-ving, explaning that we're returning to the stars when we're dead. Thank you for sharing this image!
