    This experiment worked so well that the next decently clear night I'm going to go on a long expedition to a site 5 minutes away that looks south-ish right down the fjord/sound I live on, and should be able to capture the full Milky Way galactic core (and not obstructed by my driveway trees as you see above), with any luck framed by the mountains on either side of the island.

    Conditions have to line up, but I'm patient.

    I loved the effect of the trees framing the image so looking forward to mountains as the frame.
    As Cicero said, “Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.”

    Yes! The trees add so much to this image.

    I agree. The trees add a visual "earth to universe" type connection.

    Thanks for those observations folks, I hadn't really thought so much about that, but it's given me some cool ideas! A teeny bit of foreground lighting to bring up the landscape a bit more to give scale and majesty to the sky image - a good experimental direction!

    That is beautiful, Bae. There is so much light pollution in my area; I cannot recall when I last enjoyed such a magnificent night sky. Between the streetlights and so many neighbors with backyard floodlights. They must all be afraid of the dark or something.

    I know there are some former NJ folks and possibly current NJ folks on the board, so thought you might like to see this. It is today's Astronomy Picture of the Day taken in Belmar, NJ.

    bae, any new ones?
