My first Milky Way bow

My first Milky Way bow 

Six stitched images (vertical format) were needed to make this (about 180 degree) panorama of the Milky Way. In the middle of the bow are the Magellanic Clouds, two small satellite galaxies. Out on the right, a little evening mist is beginning to cover the lights of the local town. One to view large, maybe while listening to this.
Explored.

At this point I must mention my greatest appreciation to Steve Paxton who has been a mine of very helpful advice on the relevant techniques and has an ipernity group on Milky Way Bows . I have found he also wrote an excellent (ilustrated) article in an online photo magazine on "how to".

Many thanks, Pam. I'd imagine you get fairly dark skies there, maybe worth a try?

Pam J has replied to tiabunna
George ... we have good skies ( and an nice telescope !) b ut we also have ridges (I have no proper horizon) and lots of obscuring woodland. Overhead is good (the Perseids two years ago werte the best I have ever seen anywhere.. 40 -60 an hour !) South view is okish.

Great work George. I was about to pass your name and link to my photo mate Steve but I see above that you are already acquainted. He has also been a rock for my star indulgences which, where I live is not easy. (nothing like this at least.) Good to see the separate galaxies too. ☼

Cheers, Herb

Thank you very much, Herb. We're lucky having fairly dark skies, even with the township just across the bay.
