Picture of How to Photograph the Milky Way

Photographing the Milky Way can be challenging, especially during daylight hours. There's also a difference depending on where you are located, as the Milky Way looks different in North America than it does in Europe. You might think that doesn't make sense since both are in the Northern hemisphere, but the proof is in the photos below.

I'll show you the easiest way to capture the Milky Way no matter where you are located, and all you need is a regular camera or phone to take the pictures.

The first step is to find the approximate location of the Milky Way. This can be more difficult than it seems as there is a lot of debris in this space.

Aside from other nougaty delights there are terrestrial garbage like Bounty that have no place being in the company of Milky Way.

The American Milky Way looks suspiciously similar to a Mars... Bar. Methinks the angle of the Earth at that geographic location means they may have made an error in classification.
