Sagittarius over Starfest

Taken at Starfest back in 2002. The green is light pollution from the small town of Mount Forest 14km to the south. This image has had almost no processing. I should definitely get around to fixing that horrible light-pollution gradient some day. _Imager: Olympus OM-1, Elite Chrome 200 35mm slide film pushed one stop, scanned at 4,032 x 2,688 (10.8 MP). _Lens: Zuiko 50mm f/1.8 @ f/2.8. _Exposure: Single, 5 minutes. _Guider: Camera on home-made, barn-door mount on a tripod. _Date: Aug 6, 2002. _Location: 14km north of Mount Forest, Ontario, Canada.
