Milky Way over an observatory in New England.

Ciao, Galactic Core

Here we are, in October and as luck would have it nothing but thick clouds every night (for many days and for many more to come). The Milky Way will soon be out of the Northern Hemisphere’s view, well, the galactic core anyway. That Dark Horse Nebula is what photographers like me crave to capture every chance we get. I’ve spent every clear night since May, chasing the night skies, but this summer in New England wasn’t very kind to Milky Way hounds like me. Many of the nights that were prime for Milky Way photography quickly became overcast or were incorrectly forecast by the meteorologists – not an uncommon occurrence really. Although I got many shots, as any night sky chaser can tell you, it’s never enough.
