Center of the Milky Way

center of the Milky Way Galaxy
The North parts of Scorpio and Sagittarius surround the center of the Milky Way Galaxy. Click on the picture for a larger view.

This is my first image with the 35mm lens on the Atlas mount.  Antares is near the right side of the frame, and the Teapot Asterism fills the lower left corner of the frame (mapped in smaller picture below).  This image is a combination of 10 shots of 600 seconds each at f/5.6 and ISO 800.  The center of the Milky Way galaxy in which we live is just above and to the right of the tip of the spout of the teapot.

The Teapot Asterism
The Teapot Asterism is shown in this small image.
