Prancing Pony of the Milky Way

The dark nebula in the center of the Milky Way is a fascinating visual object and one that indicates a wonderful night of viewing and photography is on tap. The dark nebula is commonly referred to as the "prancing pony" for obvious reasons. This is a stack of 10 two minute exposures with the Canon 350D at ISO 1600 and an Olympus 21mm lens. I hope you enjoy the image and there is more to come.
