First night in the Milky Way


Recommended Posts

Well, first night looking at the band.



literally had no idea there was that many stars, that there could be that many stars. Anywhere I pointed my 30mm was just an ocean of starlight. Everyone was like "what am I looking at??" -- nothing! I just pointed up and everything is stars!


I was showing them how light pollution was washing out the horizon, but the patch of the band had bright stars all the way down to the horizon. 


Best of all, a friend got out Turn Left at Orion, I opened it up to M80 and let him figure it out. We worked together to chart the area and he was so excited to hunt his first DSO hes looking into buying his own scope now.

A damn fine night. Best of luck to everyone on weather!
