This is a 38 panel mosaic I taken 25 June 2017 camping with the boys. Milky Way arching from Scorpius top left down to Carina middle bottom. You can see the Large and Small Magellenic Cloud satellite galaxies (those 2 bright blobs just above horizon between middle and light dome on the left), and that bright dot all alone middle right is Jupiter. Boo to the light pollution bottom left :( Some light from the camp grounds hitting the trees each end kind of looks cool, though.
