Summer Milky Way

Elizabeth's Summer Milky Way

Photo by Elizabeth O.
date: 13 July 1993
location: Parker - Edwards Observatory, Pelion, SC
setup: Minolta X-570 50mm f/2.8 piggybacked on Meade 8" SCT
exposure: 20min.

comments: My first astrophoto!! I can still remember picking up this roll of film from the developers and finding this picture! The airplane going through... well it went 'around' the Milky Way! No, just kidding, we held a pillow in front of the lens during the exposure -- pure luck the way it lined up!
