For those of us in the Southern Hemisphere, the Milky Way off season (where the core is not visible) is during our summer months. Normally I take a hiaitus, or just stick to star trails, but this year I decided to try something different and shoot the 'tail' of the MW as it aligns perpendicular with the horizon. This part of the sky contains prominent features such as the Carina Nebula (pink splotch just above middle), the Coal Sack Nebula (dark patch right in the middle) and the ever present Magellanic Clouds. In order to get the alignment right I had to wait until about 1-2am. This is the first of a series of Summer Milky Way shots I took over the last few weeks and was taken at a familiar location, Island Point near Mandurah, about 100km south of my home city of Perth, Western Australia.
