Description

I haven't done much astronomy lately; been having serious issues with my mount, and been busy with other pursuits. I did do this mosaic in the California desert earlier this year, and found out how much harder getting a decent Winter Milky Way shot is. My future goal is to take this desert shot against the Summer Milky Way. I spent two evenings with this sculpture this winter, and I'm still not sure this is my best effort. After doing it I came across other people's Milky Way images using this same sculpture. Initially, I thought it was my original idea. But, being such a beautiful sculpture in a rather dark place, obviously attracts other night photographers.
