This Milky Way Mosaic is a greyscale portrait of the center of our galaxy made up of 168, 5-minute photographs taking 6 complete nights from dusk until dawn beneath the dark skies of Camp Duckadang about 2 hours north of Brisbane in Queensland, Australia.
Combined into 28 individual 30-minute images and manually assembled into a single mosaic over a 2 month period, a lot of work was needed to create this special view of our galaxy. A hydrogen-alpha filter was used to reveal the spectacular detail within the galaxy's glowing hydrogen clouds, which we would normally only barely glimpse using our eyes alone on the darkest night.
Prints are produced on demand by the photographer, ensuring the same level of care in preparing your print as in taking and processing this magnificent photo of this Galaxy we call home.
