The Antares Region

Here is a somewhat unusual image of the central Milky Way I took last week under very clear skies. It includes M17, IC 4701 and M24.

This is a stack of 2 x 3 minute exposures with the TMB-92 apo and IDAS LPSv4 filter, all shot at ISO 3200 with the Canon 6D. Incredibly dense star fields, h-alpha emission objects and dark dust lanes all in a single field of view.
