Stargazing the Milky Way over Aristarchos Telescope at the top of Chelmos Mountain in Kalavryta, Greece at an altitude of 2340m/7677ft. I took this shot in a moonless night on July 18th, 2012 at midnight. The location is one of the darkest areas both in Greece and in Europe and i wanted the best possible conditions to capture the Milky Way. My settings was 20sec exp, 6400iso at f/2.8

Location: Kalavryta, Chelmos, Greece
