*Full View Please*

A waning gibbous moon rises on the eastern horizon, watched over by the central bulge of the Milky Way. In the top right of frame is the Southern Cross (Crux) Constellation. Just next to that is the dark coal sack nebula. To the dreamtime beliefs of the Australian Aboriginals, the coal sack nebula is the head of their Emu Constellation. The neck and body of the Emu is made up of the dark dust lanes extending towards the central bulge of our gallaxy. You should also be able to spot a bright meteor strike in this field of view.

Vertical panorama made from 6 horizontal images.

Amazing piece of art. It feels calming and humbling at the same time.
I especially like that the rising moon looks like the sun, did you adjust the colors there?

Thank you very much :D No. The moon is often an orange/yellow(ish) colour when close to the horizon. The long exposure accentuates it even more.

Excellent work as usual. It's amazing how the human mind can take a 2 dimensional image and see it in 3.

This must be what it's like to look up, and see forever.
