Piggyback mounter Pentax 67 with 165 f/2.8 lens stopped down to f/4.8. A composite of two exposures, each 45 minutes in length. Images combined in Photoshop.
The transition from the Milky Way's central hub into the galactic halo is seen in this image. Ophiuchus / Scrpius transition into Libra as we look right (west) in the image. This area is populated with many globular star clusters as you would expect in this area and in areas beyond the central portion of our galaxy. The image was taken in the early hours of a March morning, a great way to get a snek peek at the summer night sky.
