The image was obtained with a usual mechanical camera and lens of normal focal
length (50mm). Guiding was done on a Super Polaris mount. The place is in the
Hakos mountains of Namibia, southern Africa.
The conventional photography was digitized to about 12 megapixels and a
color depth of 3 x 12 Bits.
Digital image processing improved the quality of the image dramatically.
The main steps are the subtraction of the terrestrial skybackground and
following contrast enhancement.
