Saturn in Scorpius (135mm).jpg
Saturn, at top right, off Beta Scorpii in the head of Scorpius, March 2015. Antares is the yellow star at lower left. The field is rich in colourful blue & yellow reflection and red & magentia emission nebulas. I shot this the morning of March 28, 2015 from Silver City, New Mexico, with the 135mm telephoto at f/2.2 for a stack of 4 x 1.5-minute exposures with the Canon 5D MkII at ISO 800, plus two additional exposures of the same length taken through the Kenko Softon A filter and layered in Photoshop to add the star glows.
