The Milkyway - 2007-1

On an exceptionally clear night, I was able to get a good shot of our Milky Way with a Canon 20Da, a basic Canon 18-55mm f/3.5 lens @ ISO 1600 for 90 seconds . These were mounted on an 8" GPS scope mount for tracking. The shot was taken from our home western Oregon.


What looks like a very bright star to the center-right is actually the planet Jupiter.
