Mosaicked my previous two images together into a panoramic scene of the Milky Way in Sagittarius, Scorpius & Ophiuchus. The dark nebula formation in the center of the image is typically referred to as the "Pipe Nebula" or the "Dark Horse Nebula". I always called it the Pipe but it really does look a lot like a horse reared up on it's hind legs!
