This is a 90-minute-long exposure taken with a tripod-mounted Pentak K1000 SLR camera and a 50mm Pentax lens at Cherry Springs State Park in Potter County, Pennsylvania. Saturn, which was located in Orion at the time, is to the upper left of the picture, Betelgeuse is in the middle, and Rigel is to the lower right.
