This panorama image has been created by composing 7 flames and shows you the flow of Milky Way from Cassiopeia to Puppis.
The image covers from 120 to 250 degree in the Galactic Longitude,
and the span is equivalent to about 70 % of the Milky Way Galaxy in circumference by putting together with the Volume Summer & Autumn in next page.
Although the Milky Way in winter is more inconspicuous than that in summer,
the highly developed dark lanes are noticeable in the constellation of Cassiopeia to Auriga on the right hand side. Those complicated structures can be captured easily on films.
Perhaps you can notice a dimmed and round beam of light in the center of upper part, this is a light of the counter glow.
