Oh, Milky Way!

There is nothing like having a very dark, moonless night to view the Milky Way.  Our Milky Way galaxy has 100 billion stars!  Pretty much everything we see in the sky with our eyes is in the Milky Way.  It is only when we use binoculars or a telescope that we start to see other galaxies in our universe!

Here are some of my favorite shots that I've taken of the Milky Way.  First a shot looking out of my observatory taken on August 15, 2015 with a fisheye lens. The red glow is from the red lights I use in the observatory.

And my all time favorite is one that I took on July 18, 2015. 

I took a moment the other day to label a few of my favorite deep sky objects in this photo.

 And lastly, here is a photo of the Milky Way with what I believe is a meteor dashing through the sky.
