Subject: The photographer with friend Jim Janusz in the MOFN!
Exposure: 45 minutes
Processing: Color balance and contrast adjusted in Adobe Photoshop 6.0
Lens: Nikon 15mm rectilinear @ f/3.5
Mount: Fixed tripod
Film: 35mm Fujichrome Provia 100F
Location: Palen-McCoy Wilderness near Desert Center, California
Comments: Found near the small hamlet of Desert Center between Indio and Blythe, California, the Palen-McCoy
Wilderness is located within the hottest and driest regions of North America, the Colorado Desert. This area also contains
some of the last truly dark skies left in Southern California. While several small domes of light pollution can be seen from
the towns of Indio/Palm Springs, Blythe and El Centro, none reach over around 8deg above the horizon. The LVM is between 6.8 and 7.0.
