Milky Way View From Japanese Observatory

Taken on Sept. 16th 2014, found it today via NAOJ

"This panorama combines 7 pictures taken with a diagonal fisheye lens.The conditions inside Mizusawa VLBI Observatory are good and it is possible to see the Milky Way, but if you travel 30 minutes by car to the city outskirts, the city lights decrease and it is even easier to see.Objects like the Great Summer Triangle and the Andromeda Galaxy are pictured around the rainbow shaped Milky Way."
