APOD again

This APOD picture is not as awesomely vivid and colorful as some I've linked to, but it's a good one to remind us just how many stars are out there. The nebula shown is relatively close, and all of the stars shown are "local"—i.e., here in our Milky Way galaxy in. Of course, the picture encompasses just a small portion of the sky. Click on the image once, then again, for a full-screen version.
