This is the second outcome of this wonderful night at "Ebenwaldhöhe".

I could capture 26 x 90secs of Antares and Mars with NEX-5(mod) and the great 135mm f2 wide open. Antares was about 15° over Horizont. So I have some problems with the color from top to bottom of the picture. I have adjusted like my taste.

PS: The bright one is Mars, not the sun. :-)
