Wichita Mountains Star Field

OMG It's, like, full of, like, stars!

This image was taken at a campsite in the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge with a Canon EOS Rebel and a standard wide-angle. It is a “stacked” photograph consisting of 20 light frames and 20 dark frames to create one composite image.

It’s hard to make out, but the cluster of lighter area in the photograph isn’t clouds: It’s part of the dust/light structure of our Milky Way.

It’s not our best photo, but it’s still impressive for how new we are to this art.
