What more can be said? It certainly gives us a perspective of just where we stand in the universe.

Congrats Julian!

PS: I'd love to know the exposure time. Ten minutes? Half an hour? More?

I'd guess that it would have to be at least an hour - or maybe multiple exposures?

Just guessing ...

Cool shot though - makes me think. I assume in the southern hemisphere that the center of rotation of the stars is in the South?

That is a cool shot.  Smile I'd say it has a good chance at winning photographer's choice. Plus I voted for it.

I would say 20 mins exposure at least. I´m calculating using other shots by Julian, where he states that he used a 4 or 5 min exposure and the stars had moved just a few milimeters.
Great shot!
