A frame of the MW in Cepheus. The goal of this photo was to capture the colours of the orange stars at the bottom of Cepheus's "house". Therefore I took a relatively short exposure. The frame was exposed in September last year and the film was finished half year later. I was worried the latent image could be degradated after that long ime, so I let the film pushed. Fortunatelly, the degradation wasn't visible and the exposure showed out to be just right for the given purpose.

Pentax 6x7, Takumar 105mm, f/4, 35 min, Kodak E200, push 1, Nikon Coolscan 8000.
I made this lighter version to find the limits of that frame. Up to that bump, I'm very satisfied with this image.

The shorter exposure worked well here Michal. Great work.
