Equipment Details:

Raspberry Pi 3B+ & Raspberry PI HD camera module and Wide-angle lens.

Post-processing Details:

This is a stack of over 300 images taken over the course of one night. Individual files were imported as layers into Photoshop and then the layers were "lightened" to combine them into one image.

Image Details:

This is a view from my aurora camera which is designed to record Auroras and Meteors in my Northern sky. There were no auroras or meteors this evening but there wasn't a lack of things to see. The circular arcs in the sky are circumpolar star trails, the horizontal white streaks in the middle of the image are the headlights from cars passing by, and the curved green/yellow streaks mostly seen against the moonlit landscape are from lightning bugs, or fireflies, depending upon which part of the world you live.
