Hands down my favorite area of the night sky. Beautiful color contrast, dark nebulae, a small cluster...it's got everything.

Unfortunately I found out the hard way I got a bad copy of the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8. The stars in the upper right were horribly stretched and distorted. They're OK for web-size presentation but not much larger than that. It'll be going back to Canon for repair.

Canon 6D w/ 70-200 f/2.8 @ f/3.2 at 200mm. Taken in Canyonlands National Park under wickedly dark skies.
