It's quite amazing what you can see when out of the lights.
If you can take a camera with a M mode then you can get a great shot with about 15 seconds exposure and no star-trails. If you can then load into
photoshop then its amazing what you can get out of the 'blackness'.
In this image the guy had the filter in the camera removed which gives much more detail. You can still get fab results though without this
that's all i was going to put, cos sometimes less is more. I dunno, I wish I could see stuff like that, I live sort of half in the countryside, but
there's enough light pollution to keep out the good stuff like that.
Cool, what kind of telescope do you have? I am going to school to be either a Cosmologist or Astrophysicist but don't take time to visually observe
the stars like I should. Last year in my Astronomy class we went out a few times and saw some decent objects.
I think its an amazing video to say the least. I wasn't aware that one could see the center of the Milky Way like that. I'll have to get out my
video camera one of these nights and see what I can see to the ESE.
Yea, no actually you can see it from Earth. Of course this is only the center, or core plane of our galaxy, we are seeing it from our view in
the galactic plane. We can not actually see the core however due to interstellar dust interference. What is being seen is the plane throughout the
center of the galaxy.Obviously you can not see the galaxy as a whole since we are in the galaxy.
