Pine Mountain Observatory

Last night I went out with the local photography meet up group to photograph the Milky Way over the Pine Mountain Observatory. It was a crystal clear evening when we arrived and hoped that we would get some nice photos.

The clouds rolled in.

The Milky way was to start appearing over one of the domes around 11:30 p.m. At around 11:00 p.m. clouds appeared and obliterated the clear sky. We did get some photos of the stars once it got dark but I’m not very happy with my photos. I have an older camera and have to crank up the ISO so I get a lot of grain. We will try for the Milky Way another time.
