The Milky Way from Centaurus to Cygnus. This is a 5 frame mosaic, with each frame taking 30*15sec subs. The frames were then stitched together. This isn't the final version. There is more here to do, but it still looks pretty good to me...

The cool thing is how much you can see with just your eyes. I could see ridiculous amounts of dust, M8, etc... The Scutum star cloud was so bright I wasn't sure it was really it until I checked a chart. In the image you can find all sorts of stuff spread from north to south.
