This is a 53 shot panorama of the Crux & Carina region of the Milky Way above a dry Lake Norring, 2.5 hours south east of Perth in Western Australia.

This was a forced composition, the only respite from 50km/h winds was between two outcrops of large boulders so that's where I began the first panorama of this long night. Thankfully the winds abated later on. Crux is adjacent to the large, dark Coalsack Nebula almost dead centre of the image with the pink Carina Nebula directly above it. The smaller pink splotch inbetween the two is the Lambda Centauri Nebula.
