The exposure series starts well after midnight and ends when morning twilight became too bright and saturates the frame. Near-horizontal guiding was used to keep the camera pointed towards the Winter Milky Way and Orion. The brightest "star" is actually planet Jupiter, seen at the left side and rising above the upper edge. The second brightest object is Sirius, rising about mid-time in the video above the mountains at the center of the frame. Astonomers at work crowd the left-side foreground at the start of the video.
