Fish-Eye Winter Sky (8mm 5DII).jpg
The northern winter sky in a 360° fish-eye view from my backyard, Feb. 7, 2013, on a partly hazy night with some clouds reflecting light pollution from sodium vapour highway and street lights. This is a stack of 8 x 4 minute exposures but the foreground is from just one exposure. All with the 8mm Sigma fish-eye lens at f/4 and Canon 5D MkII at ISO 800. Jupiter is the brightest object. The Zodiacal Light reaches up from the west at right and goes across the sky to form the Gegenschein, a subtle bright patch below centre at left in Cancer and Leo. A telescope taking close up shots of Orion is silhouetted against the distant sky glow at right.
