the milky way

On our weekend camping trip I was again in awe at the beauty of the milky way in the souther hemisphere sky

Not knowing how well it might work out I thought I'd try a 1 minute exposure with the G1 at 800ISO

not nearly as beautiful as it looked from my chair in the darkness, but not bad all the same. There was a wee bit of glow from the few small towns 20km to the south (down on the horizon) but all in all it worked well enough (with no equitorial mount).
