International Dark Sky Week: April 5-11

I could not let International Dark Sky Week pass without getting out at least once with the camera to show my dark skies. I have had a lot of cloud and smoke from forestry fuel reduction burn offs lately, but things finally cleared up a bit this morning. With the central bulge of the Milky Way directly overhead just before dawn, I thought that it was time to do another vertical panorama.

Vertical panorama made from 10 horizontal images. The Zodiacal Light streams towards the central bulge of the Milky Way and the first light of the approaching dawn appears on the horizon.

Perfect title... This kind of photography feels so far beyond my reach, I find it truly incredible that you're able to do so. Thank you so much for sharing this, and having put so much effort into learning it... I love it :)

Probably one of the most accurate views of the Milky Way I've seen in a long time.  The panorama really lets you see the whole thing in its full glory without using fish-eyeing.

You are most welcome! ~
I have an EOS 60D. I know its not a very Pro camera but Can I shoot Night Shots with that? Could you suggest a lens to me? Thank you so much!

One of my cameras is a 60D as well, and you certainly can take night shots with it. Check out these images of mine for examples of night shots done with the 60D [link] [link] [link]
In terms of lenses you ideally want the fastest wide angle lens you can find. The Tokina 11-16mm F/2.8 is generally considered to be the best wide angle lens for night sky photography if you have a crop sensor camera like the 60D.
