This image has been 3 attempts and 2 years in making. First attempt I missed the north star. The 2nd attempt the moon was so bright that it was almost unbearable to look at.
This attempt was made during the Perseids meteor shower in August of 2012. 600 images shot over 3 hours created this dizzying image. I was able to capture the Polaris right at the tip of the Joshua Tree.
