Images from the Mid South Star Gaze
French Camp Mississippi

About this object

These are images I was able to take at the Mid South Star Gaze in French Camp, Mississippi in late March. The top image is a panorama of the rising Summer Milky Way over the observatories at French Camp. Second is a panorama of the setting Winter Milky Way looking back toward the education buildings and bunkhouse. The third image is a 4 panel mosaic of the Orion area and the Winter Milky Way and the last image is a shot of Scorpius and the Summer Milky Way. These images were taken on Saturday night of the star gaze with my Canon 5D and Canon 60Da
