Milky Way

On a trip to Stardust Ranch, I thought twice and decided to go ahead and bring the DSLR and tripod... just in case. I was sure glad I did! This shows the center of our Milky Way Galaxy along with several very bright hydrogen alpha regons (it was a modified camera). You can actually pick out a few well known nebula, the Lagoon, Tiffid, Omega, and Eagle nebula really stand out.
