Angel of the Night

A cluster of stars forming amid dust and gas. A few bright blue and red stars backlight the gasses producing a rainbow of color. In the background, a field of Hydrogen glows a beautiful magenta while streamers of dark dust floats above it all.

32 hours of exposure time in natural light. F6.8 2939mm focal length. Taken in the Atacama desert in Chile.

Thanks Vigdis. I’ve thought about doing that but not sure of the general interest or what the depth should be? When I explain the process to daytime photographers I often describe it as doing much the same thing our cameras and phones do but doing each step completely manually. And over the course of 10-20 hours of work on a good day!
