    Yes, further away from the OC. Of course, the growth in Menifee isn't helping either. Dark site, out in the desert would be good.

    Sorry, @Moab Man. I kinda hijacked your thread.

    My head hurts!
    Let me explain the background to the photo. I have no idea what I photographed. And since I don't know I just arbitrarily made it up as a Galaxy and named it after my wife. For all I know it could be some gas cluster. But in the end, for me, it will be Tami Galaxy after my wife.

    You are welcome. It was a joy teaching you astrophotography. Now that you have the basic understanding you are on your way to even greater photographs.

    Until we meet again, friend.

    Dark sky is really the key. However, you really have to do your homework. For example, Antelope Island in the Great Salt Lake of Utah is listed as a Dark Sky (I think gold level) and to many people, specifically their eye, it may seem that way. Antelope Island is crap. Southern Utah has some of the same designations but there is a night and day difference between the two - bad joke intended.

    Where we were shooting at I had to make NO correction to the sky.

    Ahh. Then you might be interested in either of these apps that help identify stars: Night Sky (free) or Sky Guide ($2.99 for iPhone). I believe both are also available for Android.

    Do you want to know what it is or leave it a mystery? I didn't want to be a butt in case you were having some fun.

    I would love to know, but all I really know is that it was on the eastern side of the Milky Way in the lower thick area of the mass. I literally just pointed my camera at nothing and fired away.
