Milky Way in Sagittarius

This is the Milky Way in the direction of Sagittarius and Scutum and is the view toward the center of our galaxy.  This image is 20-minute exposure on hypered Fuji Super HG400 with an Olympus OM-1 and a 50mm lens at f/2.8.  The annotated negative image of this field shows the outline for the constellations Sagittarius and Scutum and also shows the locations of the Eagle Nebula (M16), the Omega Nebula (M17), and the Lagoon Nebula (M8) all which are visible in this photograph.  Also visible are the open cluster M23 and the globular cluster M22.  The dark patch at the lower right are blurred tree tops at my horizon.
