Thanks everybody! I just have to say that this shot is not a stitch. Everything is done in-camera. The camera is on a tracker, compensating for the rotation of the earth, so the celestial sky is fixed, while the mountains and stuff semes to move. While the camera was open I ran off to the side and used a flashlight for 2-4 seconds on the close foreground to get some details in the beach sand. It's like three different pictures in one, but done in one exposure. I did several that night, and most of them came out ok. It's not that difficult. To the left in the middle you can see the Andromeda Galaxy, and the red "blob" upper left in the Milky Way is the North America Nebula. We are looking away from the center of our own galaxy, and into intergalactic space. But because this is summer, and I'm living far North, the horizon has a glow to it, rather than being pitch black.

Oh of course! That makes it all the better, great job!
