Skywatcher Tunc Tezel this summer on the island of Mangaia in the South Pacific take an image of our own Milky Way galaxy, in whcih our galaxy gorgeous shines. According to Tezel when he traveled to see the total solar eclipse of 11th July 2010, he stayed in Oneroa village on the west coast of Mangaia, Cook Islands and on first clear night in South Pacific, 7th July 2010, he was out to find clear areas to see the most of the southern skies. On the left side of the image is the brightest region in the band of the Milky Way, the galactic central bulge, toward the constellations Sagittarius and Scorpius. The bright stars of Alpha and Beta Centauri, the Southern Cross, and the Coalsack dark nebula appear on the right, along the lading Milky
Way band. Our solar system is situated in the outer reaches of the Milky Way, which is a spiral galaxy. We are located on on one of its spiral arms, out toward the edge. Tezel used a Hutech modified Canon EOS 5D at ISO 1600 and a 24 mm f/1.4 lens at f/2 to shoot nine 30-second exposures for this panorama. Multiple exposures are made to collect enough light for an image that would otherwise not be evident to the eye.
