Arizona Night Sky

A beautiful clear night so I decided to try my hand at astro-photography. I shot this toward the east (110 degrees) with my 28-300mm lens at 28mm for 11 seconds at ISO 6400. Orion is over on the right side and I believe that the large cluster of stars is a piece of the Milky Way. The large planet in the center is Venus. Photo: _7509546aaxs.jpg.
