'It's Raining Stars' - Published today

It's Raining Stars
Science News - Great Photos - Sky Alerts Newsletter is published daily and is a great source to all kind of information about the sky, the stars, meteors, constellations and more, and I have learned a lot from reading it daily.

Today (July 26, 2013),, published one of my latest astro photography images as the Image of the Day 
The following description accompanied the image:
'Living in the San Francisco Bay Are with its light pollution, it is getting harder and harder to find ‘dark sky’ to capture the night sky and the Milky Way. Last Tuesday, I drove south and camped on one of the coastal mountain tops with view to the east for the Milky Way and the west towards the Pacific. Around midnight, I captured the western view with the ~70% moon illuminating the meadow and woodlands. Rotation around Polaris was an extra bonus.
Nikon D700 with Nikkor 14-24mm lens, Monfrotto Tripod and Right Stuff Ball Head, Intervelometer.'
Thank you, Deborah Byrd and, for selecting my image for today's Image of the Day!

Til next time,
