Milky Way Panorama - The Pinnacles Desert, Western Australia

This is my first astro pano :)

It consists of 18 portrait orientated photos, 9 at the bottom and 9 at the top. I used PTGui to stitch the photos together, it wasn't a fully automated process as I was asked to assign control points to several of the photos but it was a painless process nonetheless and I would definitely recommend this program.

This particular shot was something I had planned on prior to my trip. I had read a few tutorials and away I went. I'm glad all the shots fit together, I was worried that I mucked up a couple. The pano itself stretches about 160 degrees, almost going all the way from east to west.
