The central Milky Way region is captured in this expansive gigapixel mosaic of 1200 individual images and 200 hours of exposure time. The images were collected over 29 nights with a small telescope under the clear, dark skies of the ESO Paranal Observatory in Chile. Starting on the left, look for the Lagoon and Trifid nebulae, the Cat's Paw, the Pipe dark nebula, and the colorful clouds of Rho Ophiuchi and Antares (right).

The Rosette Nebula lies in the Monoceros Constellation (the Unicorn) only 5,200 light-years distant. The dense cloud of hydrogen has been condensing to form new stars and is thought to be very similar to the environment that gave birth to our own Solar System.
