I used a modified Canon 300d with a Canon EF 28-70mm lens at 50mm f/5.6 mounted on a homemade, motorized barn door tracker. I took 53 exposures of 1 min 35 sec each for a total exposure time of 1 hr and 24 minutes.
Description
This shows just north of the Milky Way's center, which is littered with dust and dark nebulae. It also exhibits several emission nebulae and open star clusters.
