Milky Way Still Out There

With it getting darker much earlier I was able to get some Milky Way shots and avoid the moonlight and be home by 8:30. Shooting the Milky Way in the summer can be a challenge because it stays light very late. The winter months with the longer nights makes Milky Way pictures easier, but you have to time it correctly.

There are always trade offs when shooting the stars. Yes, in the summer you stay up late but most of the time you can wear shorts and a t-shirt. The winter months you're often dealing with the cold and icy roads.

Last night on Wenatchee Heights it was a pleasant 50 degrees and stars could be seen all the way to the horizon. No clouds or haze was obscuring the sky.
