This was my first take on shooting the Milky Way. I did the filming on 13.10.2012. It was a beautiful and calm night in the southwestern archipelago of Finland. I was really lucky to catch that one big shooting star, a bit of northern lights and a vertical halo from the setting sun. You can also see our neighbour galaxy Andromeda in lower middle part of the screen. I used Canon 5D Mark2 and 24mm objective. The exposure for the Milky Way shots was 30 secs (6400 ISO, f/4.0) taken almost directly towards zenith.
