This is wonderful Tim!!! The stars and the foreground are terrific. Does it need a little tilt left or is the land sloping? Viv

Thanks Viv, Nigel and Richard! It does seem to have a bit of a tilt to it, oh well! Heh. Richard, I've tried for over two years to get a Milky Way photo and was only able to in the last month. Have to get really far away from any substantial city lights. In this case, the closest city was 100+ miles away and in the opposite direction of the Sagittarius Arm. -- Tim

That is amazing what a superb shot. It almost looks like another galaxy. I have tried Astral shot like this but could never achieve the beauty of this shot. Well done.
It's the Photographer that takes the Photo not the Camera.

This is really fantastic. In my town (Venice italy) is not possible do shot like this. I hope this will become the next P.o.t.w. Ciao Mirco
