Cosmic Latte

Sea of Stars, Billions and Billions of Stars!

 

The DSLR pointed at part of the constellation Scorpius and Lupus from a dark Desert sky in the Southern Hemisphere.

 

"Cosmic Latte", the color of the Universe.

I enjoy shooting wider DSLR Lens views when I am capturing closer detail with my Telescope. Even though a 105mm Lens only shows a fraction of the observable night sky, the "Cosmic Latte" theory does seem to start becoming apparent the wider you go. Research shows that the average color of the Universe is Beige, and this is referred to as Cosmic Latte.
