Evening folks…the main reason for going to Schoodic Peninsula was to photograph the night sky. Maine has some of the darkest skies East of the Mississippi River. Though the air isn't as dry as in the Southwest it still makes for some nice imaging…
Here is a photograph of the Milky Way rising over Schoodic Point. The biggest challenge was keeping dew from forming on the lens and salt spray! If you look closely you can see a meteor burning up in the atmosphere. I viewed a number, some may be early Perseid meteors from the up coming shower peaking on August 12-13.

Evening folks…off to the Maine Coast tomorrow in the area of Schoodic Peninsula. One of my main goals is to do a night shot at this location with the Milky Way. Looks like I will have at least 3 nice nights at this very dark location….
See you in a few days!
