September 2000: The Gegenschein

23 October 2000, 19:45-20:35 UT (50 min exposure), f=16mm f/2.8 (fish-eye photo, diagonal = 180), Elite 400, from Mt. Matajur. After two days we take advantage of a perfect night. This view spans from rising Orion (lower left corner) to Delphinus (upper right corner). The Gegenschein is in the lower center of the photo. Above it are the Andromeda Galaxy and the Cepheus Milky Way (top).
