Centre of the Galaxy on Horizon (June 9, 2013) (15s).jpg
The centre of the Galaxy region in Sagittarius and Scorpius skimming the southern horizon on June 9, 2013 from home at a latitude of +51°. M6 and M7 clusters are just on the horizon. The sky was moonless but lit with perpetual twilight. Ground illumination is from starlight. This is a single 15-second exposure at f/1.4 with the 24mm lens and Canon 60Da at ISO 1600. Taken as part of a comparison pair with a 60 second exposure.
