Description
While testing my new ARSAT B lens (F.L.=250mm f/3.5), I took this wide-field image of the Scorpius-Sagittarius Milky Way where the beautiful open clusters M6 (right) and M7 are found. This image covers 5.5 x 8.3 sq. degrees, almost matching the typical field of view seen through 8x30 or 7x50 binoculars. Sum of 3 x 30sec. raw images converted in DxO Pro9 and processed in Photoshop CS6.
