Milky way bulge around Laguna (20190829)

I like that region, it's rich with emission and reflection nebulas, open and globular clusters, and even a planetary nebula (though you can't guess it in the photo). It's also about the lowest I could shoot at the milky way this season, without getting too much light pollution.

From middle left to upright through center: Kaus Borealis (star), M28 (glob), M8 (laguna), M20 (trifid), M21, M23 (open). Also some minor globulars SW of laguna can be guessed as fuzzy stars.

Gear: Olympus E-PL6 with Christmas' Samyang 85mm/1.8 first light at f/2.8 and dydimium filter on Omegon EQ-300 tracking RA
Capture: 16 lights × 60s × 1000 ISO, master bias
Site: deep country 26km from Limoges, France
Sky: average to good
Processing: Regim 3.4, Fotoxx 12.01+
