Exposure & film   10 s with digital camera Canon 30D + Sigma 30 EX 1:1.4
Date & place   September 12, 2007, Monts d'Arrée (Finistère)
I haven't gone back to the Monts d'Arrée since one year. I try one more time to capture the zodiacal light. But a thin cloud layer keep me from catching it correctly.
However, in this picture, one can see the pale zodiacal light in the lower left corner, crossing the Cancer star cluster to join with the Milky Way in Gemini. If you have some difficulties to spot the constellations, click here.
The bright object in the clouds above the bush is Venus.
