The amazing image is the result of a photographer Maurizio Pignotti, 44, using long-exposure techniques, with a little help from his brilliant subjects millions of light years away. Mr. Pignotti says he uses exposures ranging between 20 seconds and two hours spending all night out in the open to capture these rainbows of space. More pictures below.
