I have been shooting deep-sky images for a whole year, and I would like to work on some wide-field images that show the authentic scene of our galaxy. This image is taken with an equatorial mount and an Astro-modified camera. I spent a week at a dark site in West Texas collecting data. Stitched with four panels of Milky Way, each panel has 5 hours of data collected. 300 Images stacked in total with software named pixinsight and ptgui. Further details were processed by pixinsight and photoshop.
