Description

The Tucson Amateur Astronomy Association has a dark site, Chiricahua Astronomy Center. I went there during their Messier Marathon to get an image of Zodiacal light. I shot this with 17mm lens set at f3.2, ISO 1000 for 2 minutes. The glow on horizon is light pollution from Tucson, Benson and Green Valley.
