Posted on Oktober 17th, 2014
As a central European is it not easy, if you want to take some pictures of our galaxy. First it is often cloudy and if there are no clouds, then the moon is shining.
But if at newmoon are no clouds in the sky, then you will recognize how strong the light pollution is. Here in Austria near the village of Warth, from the right is pressing the light of a settlement into the image and the interessting center of the Milky Way, where you can only see between May and the end of July, is at the beginning of August already hidden behind the horizon.
After all you can see the Milky Way very clearly and despite of a pitch dark night, I succeeded to get the surroundings visible on the image.
