Elephant trunk HDR

Here you see my first attempt of a HDR film image of Milky Way. It is a combination a long and a short exposure. The longer should bring out the nebulae and te shorter to recover the colors of the bright star, the centers of which get saturated in long exposures.
200mm SMC, f/5.6, 92?min+20min, Kodak E200.
The greatest contribution of the short exposure was that I was able to replace the trailed stars from the long exposure by not-so-trailed stars from the shorter one. Here you can find the 8.5 Mpix version of the image.

Keep experimenting Michal. This is really getting "there".

Igor, you are right about the exposure time. I would never take a 90 min exposure intentionally. Maybe wrote down the exposure time incorrectly. Or I might forgot about the camera when I was looking into my scope. I should start using an alarm clock. I realized that I can process a single frame similarly to the HDR frame with great results. I don't have a lot of film for experimentation now. I seriously consider taking the rests of my E200 supply and use it up under the really dark skies of Austrian Alps this summer.
