I have been capturing deep-sky images for a whole year, including nebulas and galaxies, and I would like to work on some wide-field images that show the authentic scene of our galaxy. This full milky way panorama took me a month to capture all the details and information, stitched with 4 panels, each with 5 hours of integration time, to deliver an astonishing cosmic bridge of the galaxy!
