Hi guys,

As you all know, the Milky Way Galaxy is a spiral galaxy and when you look at the 'Milky Way', you actually look in the direction of one or more of the spiral arms of the Milky Way Galaxy. The Sagittarius region, bottom left, is in the direction of the center, the bulge, of our galaxy.

5x270sec. subs and darks, Canon 10-22mm ultra wide angle lens, Modified Canon 1100D(T3), EQ6 Mount guided with Celestron Nexguide.
Location: Mokolo Dam Nature Reserve, South-Africa.
