Taken at The Southern Skies Star Party '97 in Bolivia. Using a Nikon F3 with 50mm f1.8 lens at f2. for 120 seconds. It was taken piggy back on an LX3 The film is Kodak P1600 slide film. In the upper left corner is Eta Carina. Center is The Coal Sack, and above it is the Southern Cross. Lower left center are Alpha and Beta Centauri. This area of the Milky Way is not visable from the US and is one of the big reasons for traveling to the southern hemisphere. While a better picture than the Hale-Bopp photo, it still suffers from coma. I should have used f2.8. Next time!
