 This image has captured the Milky Way from northern Sagittarius to Scutum with a standard photo-lens. A bright region in center has been called the "Star-cloud in Scutum", our eyes can detect that the region looks like a bright but dimmed cloud. Several dark nebulae have been distributed in north and south of the clouds, an interesting field viewing through a portable binocular.
