    Thanks Adrian! It was just a 30 second exposure on a tripod, high ISO and absolutely no big city lights or major sources of light pollution within 100 miles in any direction.

    I just love this picture so much! I'm going up to Cherry Springs State Park (PA) like the 3rd week in Oct. and I can't WAIT!!!! It's one of the darkest points on the East Coast, virtually no light pollution! I can't wait to shoot photographs! Your picture makes me more excited about the trip each time I look at it!!!

    Thanks Aj. sunsurfr and Michael! It was really just about being in the right place at the right time. Taking the photo was the easy part! Just need to get away from all of the city lights and get a super clear night at high altitude!

    Love this one. I have seen similar long exposures away from city lights. This is one of the best I've seen.

    Another shot similar to this was taken as an hours-long shot of the stars rotating. I need to find a spot I can try this technique.
