The 1 is well deserved....

ROFLMAO, Art! That 1 vote came from a troll [now banned] that we knew about during voting. The troll's votes in Colorful Objects were flushed, but 22 votes of 1 in Kitchen Tools and 16 gifts of contempt in this challenge were inexplicably allowed to stand, and that really disgusts me. While those votes might not affect the final order (much), they do leave a stain. 21_F.gif KarenK was robbed of her fourth 7, which would have shown two places higher on her profileľ her best finish in 5 years. :-(

Are some of the other bigger blotches galaxies?

No, this is looking almost directly at the center of our own galaxy, so anything in the distance beyond would be obscured by gas and dust. Those dark patches aren't empty space, but massive clouds of dust that hide the stars behind them. Everything you see here is part of the Milky Way. The two nebulae are about 4,000 light years away, and most of the bright stars are foreground objects a few dozen to few hundred light years away.

Next time when you do, ping me and I will drive up north. I haven't done these kind of things and WOULD love to do that and see how you do :)

Of course, anytime! I'm out shooting on most clear nights (four times so far this week), so whenever it's convenient for you. I'll give you a tour of the observatory, too.

Never say never. The Andromeda Galaxy covers five times the area of the moon in the sky, and I've shot that with a 200mm lens. You could do it with enough determination.

Free Study worthy. This was vastly superior to my entry in every respect (other than being the real thing).

Top draw, I would love to try this kind of work.

Too bad you're not closer. I'm teaching classes on astrophotography next month.

Nice! I once thought of shooting something like this on grass and calling it "Depth of Field."

A week ago I said 21_F.gif IreneM was uncontested in this type of challenge without 21_F.gif Ursula and 31_F.gif Dax- around. Welcome back!
