Inspired by other contacts here on FLICKR, I set up my rig for wide field shooting. I haven't done it before. Anyway, this is a test shot of the center of our galaxy, the Milky Way. Way too much light pollution but I was just testing my rig, using a machined part that Dad made me to attach my camera to the counterweight arm of my Celestron CGEM mount.
