It is often difficult to see the Milky Way because of haze in the sky or light pollution from nearby cities or street lights. Getting as far away as possible from lights and/or high in the mountains helps, but still difficult to see the detail. However, with the camera, a high ISO and a long exposure the many more stars of the Milky Way almost magically appear on the image. A little extra processing in Lightroom or Photoshop can help to increase the contrast, adjust the colors and to further enhance the sky and stars to see what is out there but we can't see with the naked eye. This image was right outside the door of our camper while in Wisconsin last weekend after 11:00 pm.
17mm lens, f/2.8, 25 seconds, ISO 2000.
