Milky Way

The Milky Way over Beatty, Oregon

I spent a couple nights over Labor Day Weekend at a friend’s ranch in Beatty, about two and a half hours east of Ashland. With no moon, clear skies, and no sizable population within 30+ miles the Milky Way was quite visible with the naked eye.

I am between tripods at the moment so I had to prop my camera up in some old manure to get this shot, a 15 second exposure (to avoid star trails) @ 24mm. Next time I will be sure to have a tripod and my 14-24mm lens so I can go for a 30 second exposure without star trails for hopefully better results.
