The constellation Cygnus (with the Northern Cross outlined), and Vega
(right). Stars down to magnitude 8.0 can be seen, but the Milky Way
is barely visible. Lack of a remote shutter release meant I had to
hold the shutter button down throughout the exposure, producing the
slight wobble in the star trails even with a tripod. An
otherwise-identical exposure at ISO 200 didn't quite reach the same
magnitude limit, so I guess the high ISO setting is useful.

Cropped, but not subsampled, constellation lines added.
