Chilean Milky Way

This is a view of the Milky Way from the southern hemisphere country of Chile. I was in Portezuelo, Chile, which is in the 8th Region and about a 6 hour drive south of the capital city of Santiago. This is a single, 3 minute exposure (18mm, ISO @ 1600, f/3.5)...hence the slight star from my in-law's house on a hill overlooking Portezuelo. Antares (in Scorpio) is the red star above and to the left of center.
