This image captures the Milky Way from Deneb to Cassiopeia with our closest neighbor galaxy M31 rising over the trees. The glow of the city and a setting quarter moon add a pinkish glow to the lower left. 

 I have been exploring the sensitivity of my Nikon D7000 and stacked just three 30 second images at ISO6800.
