Equipment Details:

Nikon D81A camera with a 58mm Nikkor lens

Post-processing Details:

Not too much. I ran Noise Xterminator and played with the brightness slightly. And of course I added annotations.

Image Details:

This is the Teapot Asterism rising from behind a tree. I've heard if you can capture the Galactic Center (Milky Way) behind it, it looks like steam coming out of the spout. I was surprised by how many deep sky objects I had captured, so I annotated the image.
