A 40 Mpx stich of the Milky Way and the Antares Region made with a Canon EOS 60D an unguided Skywatcher HEQ5 and a Canon 50mm f1.8 @f3.2 and ISO800.
Final resolution is 8481x5046. The camera is unmodded, so it is with its original ir-cut filter, low-pass filters and with bayer mask.

The image is a mosaic sum of 4 panels. Each panel is a 10x120'' exposure calibrated with Darks.
