Evansville, Indiana, USA
This photo was taken from my light polluted back yard north of Evansville, Indiana. I could not see it with the naked eye, but it looked nice in binoculars. This image is a stack of five 40 second exposures at ISO 1600 with a Canon XSi DSLR and Sigma 250mm zoom lens. The camera was attached to a Vista Tracker and mounted on a regular camera tripod. I hope to get some better images this weekend through the telescope if the clouds stay away.
