A tilted view

This unusual panoramic image is presented in a tilted view. Turned by 90 degrees, it shows three of the Unit Telescopes on the left and an Auxiliary Telescope to the right . The image is, however, dominated by the bright view of the Milky Way, which reaches from one side of the image to the other.
