Canon 30D + Sigma 30mm f/1.4. Panorama of 13 photos of 10 s at 1600 ISO. Processed with DxO Optics and stitched with PTGui.
In Summer time, the Milky Way is gorgeous. From the location where I was, there is no light pollution... till Espagne, some 500 km away! In this panorama realized from 13 individual 10 s exposure, the Milky Way is visible from the horizon (Sagittarius) to the zenith (Cygnus). You can see a high definition version ( 1024x3145 pixels) by clicking here. Enjoy!
