Description
This is one of the most beautiful regions of the Milky Way. Visible in the binoculars and small telescopes both these objects were cataloged by Messier. Summer's showcase is nevertheless always quite low in our 40-some-degree latitudes. I was fortunate enough to be in rural Pennsylvania to take this shot. Exposure time - 75 min.
