This is a 72 shot panorama of the Milky Way rising above a farm at Mogumber, 1.5 hours north of Perth in Western Australia.

 

Prominent in this image are the Large & Small Magellanic Clouds, just above the light pollution on the right of the dirt track. Above them is the pink, flower shaped nebula, Carina. Just to the right of centre is the dark Coalsack Nebula alongside the constellation, Crux, aka the Southern Cross. Above the horizon is some reddish-pink airglow.
