Taken in Northwest Missouri about 11:00 PM. This picture was shot facing the west. There was a lot of moisture in the sky, and the moon was rising in the east, and that\'s what made the gorgeous colors.

A bit blurry, I think you needed to hold the camera steady.

Wide-field astro is tough; expecially when there is illumination present -you need a long enough exposure to get the stars, but not too long that any light polution gets overexposed. IMO-next itme point the camera directly at the north star so you get at least one non-moving star, or piggyback mount thte camera on a scope that can track the sky so you get nice bright circular stars of all brightnesses and tons of detail.

Also, the contest rules would have allowed you to edit out the hot/cold (red/blue)pixels in the photo. 4

Certainly have some spots. :D I wish the exposure time was either longer or shorter. The short motion trails of the stars make it look blurry. Longer would show intentional, shorter would be cooler (if possible). The red sky is nice as a background. Good luck in the challenge.
