Milky Way, Sagittarius and Scorpius region (and one Perseid!)

Last week I was in the south of Spain at 36° latitude, which is 14° more to the south than my home town. An excellent opportunity for me to go to a dark site and capture constellations which are barely visible from where I live. As a bonus I captured a Perseid in one of the first frames!

In this short movie clip you see a part of the Milky Way with Sagittarius and Scorpius passing by. The Mediterranean Sea is visible in the lower left corner. Ships are racing back and forth (at speed of 500x). Total recording time is +/- 150 minutes.
