Cygnus and the summer Milky Way setting in the west behind the snowcapped Brown's Peak in the Medicine Bow Mountains of Wyoming. Shot from the middle of a frozen lake with a modified Canon 40D on a photo tripod with a Vixen Polarie tracker set to half the sidereal rate to avoid trailing either stars or mountains. Single 45 second exposure with a Canon EF 24 L lens stopped down to f4. Hutech/IDAS HEUIB-2 body-mounted filter highlights H-II regions (NGC 7000, Pelican, nebulosity around Sadr). Processed in Photoshop. Shot about 1:30 AM 10/27/13 with first quarter moon rising behind me.
