I took this photograph of the southern Summer Milky Way on 2005/5/9 at Cherry Springs State Park in Potter County, Pennsylvania, with my Canon EOS Digital Rebel DSLR and a borrowed 15mm f/2.8 Canon EF fisheye lens.  The dark Prancing Horse Nebula, which includes the Pipe Nebula, can be seen to the right of the middle of the picture.
