Image details

The photo presented here was made during a visit in my home country in Hungary. 10-15km south to the Lake Balaton along a newly built road through the countryside I could find a real “dark-sky location” where the milky way center was visible till the horizon. On the 18th of June -one of the shortest night of the year- it was possible to observe the beautiful constellations of the summer night sky and the related deep-sky objects. A perfect occasion for astrophotography…

Camera: Canon 5D MkIII
Lens: Sigma 50mm Art f/1.4, 20x28sec, ISO 3200
Mount: Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer Mini Mount
