This shot was taken during the annual Mid-South Mississippi Stargaze held at the Rainwater Observatory in French Camp, Mississippi. A Canon SLR was mounted "piggyback" onto a Meade 10" Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope. A 70 -210 mm telephoto lens set at approximately 100 mm at f/4 was used with Fuji Gold 800 film for a 5-minute exposure. This picture was taken just after sunset under clear to slightly hazy skies.
