Traveling Wilbury Observatory

The yellow/ orange giant Antares. A globular cluster known as M4 is just to the right. Dark lanes located above, or streamers hiding stars behind a cloak of stellar dust. A fantastic area - to which I have not done justice. A longer exposure was required, but I ran out of time as the G11 was due for a meridian flip. An Iridium satellite flare was captured in the bottom left.

Nice shot. I like film too. I think you've done a great job on this one.
