A moment under the Southern Skies. The processed result of images taken on Saturday night, including the meteor I shared earlier.

Includes the Southern Cross and Pointers, Large and Small Magellanic Clouds and the meteor.

In a rare almost never seen before appearance, I am actually in the photograph too :) Standing on the ridge near the tree. Eta Carina is just behind me.

Canon 6D, Samyang 24mm, 6x60s+1x30s exposures @ 1600ISO.
