Milky Way Objects in Sagittarius

Here is a direct link to a larger animated version of the images below. Has better resolution but requires scrolling around.

Other than a shot of the North America Nebula and some visual observing, this mosaic was my only photographic project on the one clear night we had at the 2006 Cherry Springs Star Party. Photos were taken between 1:00 and 4:00 a.m. the morning of June 25. Images were stitched together and edited (as usual) in Photoshop along with all the other typed information. I've run out of web space to store any more animated gifs (and as yet I don't know how to add a "roll-over" image to this site), so I present these as two separate images for you to peruse independantly. Due to the scope and detail of these images, they are a "MUST CLICK-ON TO ENLARGE" to appreciate them fully, even at their reduced web-friendly resolution!
