Sagittarius and the tail of the Scorpion stretche across the hearth of the Milky Way. These constellations are rich in interesting objects and some of them can be seen on this picture. Unfortunately, the orange-coloured artificial lights of Quebec City and Trois-Rivieres are visible.

Details: Canon 300D, 28mm lens at f/2.8, 800 ISO, 180 sec. `piggybacked` on a motorized mount(EQ3).
