The Milky Way up Close and Personal: The Stars Like Dust

This is a region of the Milky Way near the star Caph in Cassiopeia. It is a zoomed-in image taken using the 200mm Canon lenses and the Trius M26C OSC CCDs. We are used to seeing the zoomed-out images of the Milky Way where it appears as a beautiful cloud-like structure, but I haven’t seen many zoomed-in images where all the stars can be seen tightly packed-in together.

This image is 4 and a half hours of 15-minute sub-exposures.
