Cygnus and Cassiopea

A 10-minute exposure on Elite Chrome 200 35mm slide film with a Pentax K1000 camera and a Vivitar 28mm f/2.8 lens @ f/4, taken on August 10, 2002 during the Starfest star party, 14km north of Mount Forest, Ontario. The camera was mounted on a home-made, motorized barn-door mount. The North America Nebula is plainly visible in the photo and you can just make out the Veil Nebula.
