Since the weather wasn't bad last night , I had some fun between the clouds and rains .

16 mm , Iso 800 ; f/2.8 , 15 sec

16 mm , Iso 1600 , f/2.8 , 30 sec

First picture is what I see when I look to the North-West and second is toward the South-East . As you can see , our light pollution isn't that bad ;)
The Tarentula nebulae can be seen in the second pictures , at the bottom . And yes , it appears like that with the naked eye once you get used to the darkness .

You can even see some nebulosity around the stars in the pleiades!

Man, those take me back! I spent my honeymoon in French Polynesia - Moorea and Bora Bora. Absolutely BEAUTIFUL skies at night. Wish we got anywhere close to that many stars showing around here....but big cities aren't great for that :(

Anyway, great shots, very jealous :)

Thank you :)
Yeah I guess we're lucky with our skies , but with the humidity and hotness of the climate , it's rare to get ideal seeing/turbulence to capture more serious pictures , especially in planetary .

On another note , the lights of Moorea can be seen in the 1st picture ;)
