What lies beyond human sight

I recently pointed my camera upward toward the night sky and experimented with long exposures of the stars. What I saw in the photos amazed me. While I expected to see the streaks of "nearby" stars, I was not prepared for the tapestry that lay behind them. The entire photo was filled with tens of thousands of stars that can't be seen with the naked eye. I knew they were there, but had no idea my camera could capture them. This five minute exposure shows only a portion of the entire photo.
