~2.5 hr exposure, Ogema, Saskatchewan.

As for technique:

I set up in the back of my truck, using a 20mm lens for a good perspective of the barn. Used Sensia 400, and f/4.

It was an extremely calm fall night and pitch black...or so it seemed. The sunset look is probably from Regina, ~1hr away.

    Really great. I am guessing that you must be near the south pole to have that view into space where the stars are circling?
