This is an extremely wide shot of the Winter Milky Way. In it you can find the entire area of Orion, including M42 and Barnard's Loop, M45, the Hyades, the Double Cluster in Perseus, and much more. This was imaged with an un-modded Canon 6D DSLR with a Zeiss 21mm lens at F3.5. 14 minutes total exposure with 2 minute sub-frames. The mount was an unguided Skymemo.
