Scorpius (Blue Mountains)

Programmed the intervalometer and let it rip for a while. About 30 frames. Didn't find any meteors... Maybe I'll try a brief time lapse of the core of the Milky Way.

I love this part of the sky. Clearly visible are Messier 7 (M7), the Butterfly Cluster (Messier 6 or M6), the Lagoon (Messier 8 or M8), even the Eagle (Messier 16 or M16).

Canon 40D, 18-55 EF-S lens at 24, manually focused, 20 seconds, f/3.5, ISO 1600, tripod mounted, intervalometer, RAW, slight processing in Canon DPP, in particular, colour temp set to 3700.
