Description

This is a 117 minute (78 x 90sec) exposure using an Canon EOS Ra coupled to a Sigma 40mm f/1.4 Art lens set to F2.8.  ISO 1600 was used.  A Kenko Skymemo R was used for tracking.  I tried to bring out the dust lanes as much as possible and minimized the stars a bit which tend to overpower Milky Way images shot with short focal lengths.
