What would the Milky Way look like to an observer on a planet in the LMC?

If the observer's eyes were dark adapted enough, it would be a brightish spot about the size of the moon in the middle of a body spanning 20-30 degrees across the sky.

What does that body look like though?

What would a LMCian with a camera be able to get? Has Mr Hardy done anything on this subject?
