From the Blue Horsehead and Rho Ophiuchi to Jupiter and the Milky Way
by pete_xl, auf Flickr

With Pentax alone under the night sky....

The colorful Rho Ophiuchi cloud complex near the yellow star Antares is one of the most beautiful regions in the night sky for me. The image shows the Blue Horsehead Nebula (upper right), the Rho Ophiuchi region (middle right), the bright planet Jupiter and part of the Milky way on the left side of the image.

I shot this image on a green field on the island Naxos (Greece) with just the built in Astrotracer function of my Pentax K3ii. The camera was set on a normal travelling tripod. 67 half minute exposures were combined for the final image.
