Messier 24 Region

Messier 24 is the showpiece of the Sagittarius Milky Way and is accentuated by its rich surroundings.

 

The original negative for this image is something to behold. I spent about an hour with a loupe just taking it all in before scanning.

 

This image was acquired with the Pentax 67 and 400mm f/4 SMC Takumar stopped down to f/5.6 and a 40 minute exposure on Fuji Neopan Acros film.
