Doug Jackson shoots the Milky Way on September 28, 2014, 8:22 PM at a night sky photography workshop I taught with Vincent Lawrence of Acadia Images Photography Workshops and Matt Pollock at Hunter’s Head in Acadia National Park, Maine. We have a couple openings left at this weekend’s workshop, May 15-18, if you are interested: http://www.acadiaimages.com

On this date, in the fall, the Milky Way was 213.5° southwest on the compass dial, with the galactic core becoming visible through nautical twilight, clearest by 7:56 PM, and setting below the ocean’s horizon at 9:41 PM. The bright star to the left of the Milky Way is Altair, one of the three stars of the summer triangle.

Nikon D700, Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8, & Promote Control @ 14mm, f/2.8, ISO 4000, 30 seconds, and 3429°K. Edited with Lightroom, dark frame subtraction via PixelFixer.
