Photo Essay: Central Oregon Night Sky

Last Weekend I had the opportunity to travel through Central Oregon and visit the Pine Mountain Observatory outside of Bend where I was able to check out Saturn and the M1 star cluster through high powered telescopes. Central Oregon has one of the best night sky viewing areas in the world and I would highly encourage anyone interested in astronomy to go visit sometime. It is simply incredible! This is my first ever attempt at night sky photography so I hope you enjoy!

    I love your photos of the night sky. I grew up on a farm in South Africa, miles away from any form of light pollution – and continued to visit my parents there well into my adulthood. That Southern sky is unbelievable. I now live in UK but have yet to see the Northern sky to best advantage.
