One Serious Hobbiest

How a 28 year old comes up with the cash and the time to pull this off is, quite frankly, something I have a difficult time conceiving.  But I'm sure glad he did. 

Nick Risinger traveled through different parts of the world with some very expensive camera equipment, and no doubt telescopes, shooting pictures of the night sky.  The goal was to take a high definition photo of the entire night sky. This may be one of the coolest things I've seen, and it's been done so well I had to share it with you all. 

All the details are here.  37,000 photos all stitched together!  My god man!  It really is a thing of beauty.  Make sure you select and play with the overlay.
