|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This picture is a big crop (%75) of the original image. In order to present well the big dipper I also added -20 brightness and +70 contrast with Photoshop.|
This picture contains the "big dipper" or "Plough" asterism of the constellation Ursa Major. I had struggled too much to take this picture with my old tiny Sony W5 on the roof of our house in 2005 without a tripod.
You can fallow the link for detailed informaiton about "Ursa Major" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ursa_Major and "Big Dipper" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Dipper.
I wish you enjoy...
