Moraine Milky Way

Decided to work on one of the images I took in late June around New Moon time. I posted one of the hots of Jimmy sitting on a chare on the dock. I wanted to put one up of the lake and the stars. The lights in the background are fishing boats that were in a month long Striper Bass Tournament. The lit sky is the light from Pittsburgh picked up in the twenty second exposure. The dock in the image is the one I usually put my boat in. It is Watts Marina on Watts Bay on the North Shore. Think I'm kind of fortunate to get some images or the Milky Way in such a high light pollution zone as western Pennsylvania. Pretty difficult to achieve versus northcentral PA or the Monongahela National Forrest area of WV which are the two darkest sky areas east of the Mississippi. So, at lease I got it here.
