Hi there! I'm posting an image of Milky Way in the Vulpecula constellation from the last summer. I will have to give more attention to this region this year. The photo was taken on a night when the Milky Way looked really like milk near the horizon - clearly visible, but no structure. In the zenith it was fine. The photographed area was somewhere in the middle. Fortunately, image processing can make a magic.

Pentax 6x7, Takumar 400mm f/4 @5.6, 57 min, Kodak E200, Nikon Coolscan 8000 ED.

Clik here for higher resolution (5.9 Mpix).

Maybe you can note some "strange" patches in the image. Those are parts where I had to mask out some faults in scanning.

Include me in shooting this area Michal. Lots of dark nebulae with spots of red. A great area to be sure. That 400 lens is working well for you.

Very well done Michal. You've highlighted a very interesting and often neglected region of the Great Rift.
