This is a 50 shot panorama of the Crux region of the Milky Way band as it aligns perpendicular with the horizon over Lake Dornducking, just east of Wagin, about 2.5 hours south east of Perth in Western Australia. The foreground was light painted with a hand held spotlight.

Prominent in this image are the Magellanic Clouds in the top right quarter, the magenta coloured Carina Nebula in the galactic band and some red and green airglow just above the horizon.

This is a sight only found in Southern Hemisphere skies.
