Astrophotography: Moving Milky Way

Moving Milky Way - This pictures has been shot with a tracking system to capture the movement of the milky way.

Description: The center of our milky way is very nice to see in this picture. The photo has been taken with the help of a mobile tracking system (Astrotrac) to capture and follow the movement of the milkyway. It was so possible to use long exposure times! That's why the trees at the bottom of the photo are blurred a bit. The picture has been taken in the australian outback on a camp site. At the left you can see the small magellanic cloud.
