This is a 30 mionute exposure with a 16mm Nikkor fisheye lens @ f/5.6 on a Mamiya 120 back with Fuji Provia 400F pushed to ISO 1600.
The zodiacal light, or "false dawn," is joined by the rising of Venus. Farther west on the ecliptic is brilliant Jupiter and saturn. Faint bands of green airglow can be seen paralleling the horizon on the right.
