This is Sagittarius along with portions of other constellations as indicated. The "teapot" asterism is outlined. The image was taken about 10 miles NW from Cedar Rapids, IA. Light pollution is still evident. Exposure was set by the 500 rule (24mm f/2.8, 13s). The "overdone" blue and red processing was done to add contrast for illustration of the different types of regions, including the orange/brown haze, which is the light pollution. With "normal" colors it is more difficult to differentiate. This is a combination of two images using the new LR-6/CC panorama.
