The core of our galaxy

Staring to the Sagittarius region during a clear summer night is always a moving experience. Naked eye cannot count the stars. But a good pair of binoculars is enough to literally lose one's reason and begin a floating travel into the deep space.

This is the thickest part of our galaxy, its core.

This film, Fujichrome 1600, has been exposed for 17 minutes. Optic used is a 24 mm.

Guided on equatorial mount.
