This is a 59 shot panorama of the Milky Way over Nambung Desert near Cervantes, about 2 hours north of Perth in Western Australia. The desert is actually a small area of sand dunes just a half kilometre or so from the Indian Ocean and not more than about 3 square km in total area.

The light pollution is from Lancelin, a small coastal town about 50km away. The Magellanic Clouds are just to the right of this light pollution and a little further up and to the right is the magenta coloured Carina Nebula.
