Autumn Stars and The Moon Gate

From the photographer: "In this image we can see the intense light trail of the waning moon during an exposure total of 4 hours. Just right of the moon trail is the trail of the planet Jupiter. The trailing stars of Orion are visible at lower right. Other constellations are visible in the image as well; Andromeda, Perseus, Triangulum, Aries, Camelopardalis, Gemini, Auriga, and Taurus. The trail of the planet Mars blends into the track left by the intense glow of the moon behind the old iron gate."
